    I am not emotionally invested in the I/P situation, just cognizant that it's been a regular Big Deal ongoing issue for as long as I've been alive. Hell, the bloody incarnation of 'Modern Terrorism' was invented over there, and the Muslims weren't even the first practitioners.

    Thus I've got no clue how to cure the problem. Always looked to me like one stretch of rocky desert is pretty much the same as any other stretch of rocky desert, I'd move my family to a different rocky desert (or maybe an actually nice place that's green) and make an actual home before I'd watch them all die of hate generation after generation. But that's just me. Perhaps so many Palestinians are still, after three generations, stuck in isolated, deprived ghettos in Palestine and refugee camps elsewhere is that their relatives in surrounding Muslim countries don't like them or wish to help them either? Hell if I know, but there they are.

    All that said, yes. I do consider the current Israeli war against the people of Palestine to be disproportionate to the given irritation. Seems this is SOP for Likud, and Netanyahu isn't mellowing in his old age like so many in the Old Guard did.
