    Plenty of nonviolent protestors have been slaughtered over the centuries.  This is just as much of a myth as "good always triumphs over evil".  

    There are plenty of examples where nonviolent resistance won't do shit.  Assad in Syria could stay in power forever if his populace just protested nonviolently.  It's only when they took up arms against him that he started running into trouble.  

    That isn't to say I support violence on the part of the Palestinian groups, but this idea if they just sing Kumbayaa everything is going to be fine, is bullshit.
