Well its my turn to give my input :P
Having many cousins and families in the israeli army, I can tell you that my entire family, in Australia and living in Israel, wishes their children were not in the army. They all wish everyone would just stop fighting. The only true fact in this war is that families who truely love their children on boths sides, deep down want the fighting to stop.
Its the people who fuel their anger by trying to lay blame on one another for things that happened in the past that are continuing the conflict.
Looking to the past for answers is wrong, as both sides have caused pain and suffering. The Israeli / Palestinian conflict, isn't really Israel's only problem, she is surrounded by enemies and is more like a DOG tied to a fence, get close enough and she bites..... but none the less our hands are tied. we cannot go all out war because its not what israel wants and its not what jewish people around the world wants and its not what anyone wants. So Israel just defends when pushed. Its very difficult to deal with people who are ruled by a terrorist group turned political party. Hard to really know their true intentions towards Israel and towards their own people.
The only way this conflict will work, is if Muslims and Jews, learn to respect each others religion, and realise that you should not force your opinions about life, god, or religion onto anyone but yourself.....
That is the root of all wars. Forcing opinions or ideals onto other innocent people....
Muslims around the world, especially those who state publicly that they want israel destroyed or flattened (iran) need to know and accept that Israel will be around for ever. This is the fundamental idea that muslims will not accept, because muslim law states that once arabs occupy a land, it becomes holy to them, and they own it for eternity. This is going to make it very difficult for muslims to let go of Israel.
Unfortunatly, this battle for land, is a religious battle, and religion seems to only end in war.......
