LIKELIHOOD OF SUCCESS??

I think there 's an inherent compromise with that kind of approach. By what and more importantly whose standard are you determining what makes it likely?

I wonder if people would have come to think of MX the way many think about Yassir Arafat now. Many consider him a failure for pressing a violent and unyielding approach against a far superior violent power in Israel. I wonder if Palestinians would have achieved their goals faster if they had adopted a passive resistant/Ghandi-like approach that would have allowed them to generate worldwide sympathy and support against the Israeli/U.S. bloc?
I'm glad you mentioned.

Seriously, do you not think that the idea that the Palestinians would have "accomplished their goals" had they done things the way Israel and the U.S. suggested (and they have ardently supported non-violence for Palestinians.... hmmm... ) is a bit disingenious? Do you really feel any of the Peace Accords equate to what the Palestinians desire without a lop-sided compromise on their part or really no real compromise on Israel part? Seriously?

Do you feel they've ever been presented with a fair deal? And why is this about sympathy? I regard that as fair-weather type of friendship...
