Violence is the most recognizeable sign of fear.
Fear is what this long war is all about. There is just no trust from all sides. Palestinians don't trust Israeli's and the other way around. And why should they? Palestinians think that Israeli's don't want peace and Israeli's think the same of the Palestinians. And honoustly, I think both sides like war. They enjoy living and murdering for their own country, they are just too proud. The power of the blue and white flag of Israel lives in the Israel hearts and the black, white, green and red in the hearts of the Palestinians. And they're both afraid of losing. It's a naieve thought that war -and warfeelings- is the solution in this matter. If Arafat is in power to stop the terrorist-actions, he should do so. Likewise, Israel should retreat all military units. AND THEN START TALKING PEACE. If Sharon starts with retreating, the rest of the world would consider him the most wise and strongest of both. If Arafat stops all terrorist activity, he's the hero. And if there are people who do not agree, they should think of what more important for them: their country or their life. And if they choose their country, let's go to a real dilemma: your country or the world.
