An Arab kamikaze kills, Israel retaliates... If Israel believes it can win the war of attrition with the Arabs then it's lost any perception of basic arithmetic. How can Israel believe it can do better against the Arabs than the Russians have against the Chechens? If the Chechens were the majority, the Russians would certainly change tactics for the sake of survival. To survive, the Israelis should try, not to kill a greater number of Arabs, not to scare the Arabs, but TO ISOLATE themselves from the Arabs. It can be achieved only by withdrawing the military and civilians, including the settlers, the main cause of all the trouble, from Arab territory. Otherwise, Israel is just increasing momentum of the advance toward the abyss.
