Seeker: You're always accusing people of being evasive.
"If Israel today, reined in the military and stopped all overt actions of reprisals for terrorism enacted against the Jews and the nation of
Israel, would acts of terrorism against Israel cease, be it from Hamas, Hezbollah, PLO, etc.?"
Yes, of course acts of terrorism would cease. The Palestinian militants protest ISRAELI OCCUPATION. Take away the Occupation and they will have to
focus on living their lives in their country. You know, getting a job, being a part of an ECONOMY instead of being disenfranchised and without
"If Israel dismantled all settlements and moved behind the "Green Line" and the 'wall' was torn down, would all acts of terrorism against Jews
and the nation of Israel cease, be it from Hamas, Hezbollah, PLO, etc.?"
Yes, see above. I am sure that there would still be a handful of Palestinian extremists, but there would also be an equal amount of Israeli
extremists. Nothing happens overnight, but attacks would CEASE, no doubt at all.
[i']"If Israel booted out all factions of Zionism and/or Zionist, would all acts of terrorism against Jews and the nation of Israel cease, be it
from Hamas, Hezbollah, PLO, etc.?"
No, they would have to withdraw from the Occupied Territories, kicking out Zionists is not enough, and in itself is unnecessary.
"If Israel did all these things, would all acts of terrorism against Jews and the nation of Israel cease, be it from Hamas, Hezbollah, PLO,
Yes, ALL acts of terrorism against Jews, by Palestinians protesting the Occupation would cease.
Of course, if Israel DOES withdraw and continues to bomb "suspected terrorist sites" in other countries (hi Syria!), then they WOULD have to deal
with more terrorist activities.
Withdrawing is not enough but it's the biggest single aspect to halting terrorism against Jews in Israel and around the world. It's common
But of course, if you believe that every Palestinian just wants to slaughter Jews, you're not going to buy that. BUT, your assumption is flawed.
NOT every Palestinian wants to kill Jews. Some want to kill Jews that are ON THEIR LAND. Some want to kill Jews because the IDF has shot and killed
their children and friends. Most don't want to kill anyone, they just want to get on with their lives.
Take away the Illegal Occupation and things get better on BOTH sides. Give the Palestinians ANY hope for the future and suicide bombings would stop.
Palestinians would not sacrificie their LIVES if they believed that things are actually getting better.
Again, to me it's common sense.
