Yes Lincoln. Undoubtably, you've heard: "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me". Well has been expanded. We know their issues, we know what to do, and we KNOW what has worked to stop terrorism in Northern Ireland. If we don't change, then it's 'shame on us'. Maybe my statement was a crude way to put it, but same difference.
Imran's point was that the Israelis should've addressed Palestinian terror like the British have recently addressed Irish terror - by examining their legitimate grievances, instead of increasing repression.
Bingo! When the Brits started listening to the disgrunted minority and started trying to address those problems, the violence fell dramatically. Violence only begets violence, as the British found out.
I do find it highly amusing that MANY Americans supported Irish terrorists as freedom fighters, but Palestinian terrorists are dirty terrorists. Perhaps some subtle racism plays in here as well?
