David - Do you think the Palestinians in Israel haven't suffered
comparably to the Jewish segment of Israel's population? Does this
suffering justify accusing others without evidence? That is my point,
regardless of anyone's suffering.
@at long last,From the comfort of your chair and your computer, you
judge Israeli leadership--those that have suffered near-constant terror and war
for decades.The polarization continues....
The origin of the fire is not yet clear, but it would help defuse the
Arab-Israeli tension if Israel stopped building settlements on conquered land.
When civil disobedience is ineffective, the Palestinians have few options other
than violence. It is the same tactic used by Israelis before 1948 when the UN
declared Israel's nationhood. It is past time for the Palestinians also to
be given a sovereign nation .
Accusing people without evidence is scapegoating. It may well turn out that a
Palestinian set the fires, but until there is evidence it is wrong to suggest
that. I would expect nothing less from Israeli officials though.
