    by the way just to mention this fact that the first Suicide bomber of this intifada was Christian so this is not a Muslim movement. Its a nationalistic Palestinian movement. you cannot envisage why suicide bombers do what hey do unless you live with them or experience what they experience.
    No .. that means its not EXCLUSIVELY Muslim ... but it is 99.9999% Muslim.

    I dont have to understand why they do it (though I can imagine) - that doesnt excuse it - anymore than a child abuser doing so because he suffered the same thing at the hands of his father...

    are you saying I need to be abused to condemn it?

    I agree, thats less reprehensible, but its David and Goliath, isn't it?
    No, because David didn't exactly go sling-shotting Goliath's mom and younger brother.

    engagement doesnt necessarily mean fighting. it could mean campaigning, waging a social war, waging a war against apartheid policies.
    But you were talking about suicide bombers.

    If they complied then they clearly feel Israel, given their history, and their allies, gets away with whatever it wants to.
    and so continues the circle.

    in this tit for tat outlook nothing changes.

    ways to proceed:
    one side backs down.
    one side uses "exponential force" and genocides the other.

    Well, that's the whole point. There were people living there before. Evidently, God told them to fcuk off:

    "For My angel will go before you and bring you in to the land of the Amorites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Canaanites, the Hivites and the Jebusites; and I will completely destroy them...."
    Well that wraps it up conveniently then, anytime i find myself questioning anything again, i'll just dip in to the bible and put my mind at rest....

    As an aside, who are all those "ites"? By the way, i hate to make a very trite, obvious point, but any group of people could write a book claiming that a higher power says do XandY because its in their interests

    So how does that make it the polar opposite?

    yes, it is expensive to keep up you military when all of the nations around you don't recognise your right to exist, and would invade if they had any chance of success. And yet, Israel still has a pretty high standard of living for the general population.
