23. Those "wingnuts" were voted into power by the population.
Hamas is now in control in the PA and Hezbollah has a minority of seats in the Lebanese parliament.

Furthermore, Israel's attacks on Lebanon's infrastructure are not indescriminate.
In contrast, Hezbollah's attacks on Israel are indeed indescriminate.

The security barrier is there to keep terrorists and suicide bombers out,
not to keep the Palestinians from having a viable state.

If the barrier saves the life of even one person from being a victim of a terror attack,
then it serves its purpose.

I agree that there are issues of how the barrier is laid out.
I saw a documentary produced by some people from France on PBS not too long ago.
I sympathize with the individual Palestinian farmers and families
who have been affected by the barrier.

Palestinians were offered a very generous deal back in late 2000.
They responded with suicide bombers because they did not get everything they wanted.
