16. its not about injustice...
Edited on Fri Apr-29-11 01:25 PM by pelsar
thats an impossible concept to conceptualize/quantify given the different cultures. Anybody who talks/believes that the injustices on each side can be quantified and made amends for hasn't really listened to the two sides.....(or is so ethnocentric that the believe their version of justice is what everyone believes in).

its about national interests and what each side is willing to live with....nothing more than that. The greatest chance of that happening is if the Palestinians get themselves a working STABLE democracy.......it should be clear by now that dictatorships at best are not stable and at worst are willing to murder their own to stay in power...neither is good for the Palestinians nor israelis.
