Nothing good can come out of that conflict. They are both in the wrong in my eyes. Whether it is Isreal and their aggresive oppression, or it is the militant Palestinians and their wreckless disregard and respect for innocent life in general. Neither one will ever totally stop. Religion and Land are just part of the story. This goes back through years and years of history. For these reasons, I felt for the Palestinians and their hardship.

However, on 9/11, I changed my mind. I know of no intentional direct or indirect harm to Americans from any Isreali Jew for political reasons. However, I did see that a lot of Palestinians and other militant muslums of the middleeast celebrated the distruction of lives and property when the towers went down. Those were not only American or Isreali lives. Those were lives from many other countries and walks of life. Pro-Isreali and Pro-Palestine. Those were not US military or politician deaths, but innocent civilians, most with no real political powers except through the elections. When you have a people like that, then all bets are off. There will be no peaceful settlement to this arguement for sometime. The property lines may be drawn differently in the near future, but the war will wage on.

Why we think that we can solve all of the world's problems is beyond me. However, I side more with Isreal on this one every day. Not because I believe in what they are doing is right, but because, they don't seem to have this need to kill good Americans and Foreigners.
