Tom, over at Backup Brain is fed up with Arafat. I am too, but I also know that this is a war between minorities. From talks I’ve had with both Palestinians and Jews from the area most from both sides are willing to live together peacefully. It’s the zealots on both sides that are causing the problems. Now, I’m not saying that getting rid of the zealots will lead to complete peace and happiness between the two cultures. There is going to be tension and resentment between the two groups for a long period of time, even among the most compassionate among the two groups. But they will live together. It’s the zealots that are introducing the violence.

Yeah, Tom, Arafat needs to go, but pushing all the Palestinians into the sea isn’t going to be the answer. That’s just continuing the mess.
