even IF everything stated above is true, people are responsibe for their own actions. and you cannot reasonably expect the world's sypmathies when you react by blowing up a cafe or bus. the problem is that the palestinians and their neighboring arab countries would like for israel to not exist at all, and they fund terrorist activities to try and accomplish that goal.
i agree with the people who say that the extremeists on both sides are holding the general population in a quagmire.

the part you should be against is the murder of innocent people, many of whom are the moderates that may even agree with some of the palestinian issues and causes. you being "anti-suicide" does not impress me, you've got an issue with the wrong part of the problem.
