    Over 1300 Palestinians were killed just a few months ago, most innocent civilians, many, way too many children.  Humanitarian aid is still being blocked from entering Gaza.

    Do you expect resistance to stop under conditions that Israel has created under occupation?  Totally unrealistic. It would be political suicide.  Palestinians have no other voice.  

    With international pressure in the form of sanctions, boycott and divestiture against Israel and American conditions on military aid, you will see Palestinian peace movements get traction.   But to pre-condition negotiations on Palestinians being peaceful is allowing yourself to be blind to the terrors of the occupation.
