    Was the death and destruction of WWII worth the peace and prosperity Germany and Japan have enjoyed since then? It's debatable.

    But could such peace and prosperity have occurred without the war? No. Unquestionably not.

    How does a burn victim heal? First by the excruciatingly painful scrubbing off of the burned skin.

    But the way the situation is now it's just a gaping, oozing two gashes where there is nothing encouraging going on. It is where life exists. Little more than that.

    Comparing WW2 to a conflict such as this? Really?

    In the 0.000001% of the time, perhaps it can be justified. But this conflict is not one of them

And in showing their appreciation the Muslims stand on top of the mount and throw rocks down on the heads of Jews. In 1967 Israeli forces actually captured the temple mount and it was completely under Jewish control.

    They did not have to give it back. To the victor goes the spoils.

    Now if Israel giving up the temple mount to the Muslims is not a sign that they really would like peace then there simply is no sign that people against Israel would ever accept

    What I've noticed over the years is that even the most rational posters become dogmatic and less rational when trying to defend the Palestinian position.

    There is little to defend. It's like a defense attorney whose client insists on promoting a story which depends on winning the jury's emotions instead of their logic.

    Virtually every step of the way since 1948, save a few notable exceptions, the Israeli government has acted in a way designed to promote peace and conciliation. And this is shown by the Israeli's ability to sign peace accords with two of their previous most bitter of enemies, the Egyptians and Jordanians.

    You can go round and round but we all see things for what they are.

    The Palestinian intransigence is religious in nature as much as it is a territorial dispute ONLY.

    Maybe more so.

    Funny, i'd use the same term for those who defend Israel's actions
