    I am not sure of your point here Grant. I agree that the Israelis live in
    fear and spend massive amounts of their GDP on armaments because they chose
    to make their nation in Palestine by force of arms and the use terror. And
    that the Palestinians relied on the West to defend them against this
    aggression is probably the reason that they are a race of refugees. But are
    you saying that, as I do myself, that a war on terror by the use of terror
    is a self-perpetuating conflict? And why can we expect no more than that;
    are we all brain damaged?
