In War We Trust (By Stavro Jabra, 9/9/03).

This is the everyday reality in the Middle East region of Palestine and Israel

Some comments on the Israeli strategy here. As Kevin says the "blood will never stop until it is accepted that there can be no military solution to the conflict." As Juan Cole observes:

"...Sharon's iron fist is simply not working as a means of establishing general peace, and the Bush administration will have to finally apply effective pressure on Sharon to stop his outrages in and colonization of the West Bank and Gaza. Sharon's hard line has worked in tandem with Hamas's terrorism to ratchet up tensions further and further, which spill over into the Muslim world and serve as a recruiting tool for al-Qaeda in its search for agents willing to hit the United States."

A political struggle requires a political solution not a military one.
