They hate us for our freedoms.

This endless shitstorm continues because it fuels power and wealth in leaders of both sides. The worst was Arafat who had a great deal handed to him, and at the last moment tossed it because it would have meant the end of his power/personality cult. So you get the Palestinian permanent self-pity culture, which keeps the threat to Israel simmering, which feeds the right-wing pricks like Netanyahu. It's all symbiotic.

Don't you think the fact that Israel is a democracy that might actually listen to its critics has something to do with it? I mean, how do you get a monster like Assad to back down without military force?

@3 I think it's good to remember that this is the early stage of a conflict which could lead to loss of life greater than Syria if this thing really blows up. But I share your dismay. The horrors of Syria seem to know no limits. It really is devastating that it has gone on this long. And we continue to do nothing.
