    All they need to do is kill Ariel Sharon and maybe the whole world will be a little happier. Face it, these two men are from an other generation that no longer represents teh majority. It's time for a fresh start.

    It's not naive, only in the hearts and minds of those who don't want to do so...

    :angel: Sometimes naivety is the real truth... I want that too.
    Our theory over here, by the way, is that he's actually been dead for a while now, but that it's been covered up. Apparently he didn't appoint a direct successor which will complicate things, so they were trying to get things organized within the few days of breathing space. I'm really not sure what'll happen now. Whatever your opinions though, it's always appropriate to give respect to those who've died.

    Doesn't change the fact that Sharon is almost certainly guilty of terrorism against the British army...ironic you might say...

    Sharon blames the Palestinians for supporting terrorism whilst he himself was a terrorist. Look at how many of Sharon's former colleagues were assassinated by British hit-squads and the Israeli helicopter-gunship strikes on Palestinian leaders seem even more ironic.

    Arafat is was a decidedly cleaner character than Sharon ever will be...

    I don't know enough to go into detail about it but as far as I can see it's almost certain that Sharon was a terrorist.

    Sharon is a douche bag bully as far as I'm concerned. Then he has the douche bag Americans giving his army military equipment like tanks, guns and grenades! :doh:

    THe Israeli army has all those weapons and the Palestinians are left throwing rocks. Isn't that fair! :rolleyes:

    Well, just to let you all know, but I'm sure none are surprised, some of the Palestinians have now launced full-scale attacks against the Israelis in response to Arafat's death and him not allowed to be buried in Juresalem(spelling), but merely in Ramallah
