    Agreed, but it is then so hard for one to see (Israelis) that they are holding back the other ( Palestians) to reach for that higher wealth/ lower birth rate and that thus they are digging their own graves !? In the end, simplistic thinking I agree, the Palestians will win or at least will have the benifit of being the winner, because in the proces of keeping the Palestians one tumb under the Israelis will have destroyed themselves...!

    Or I am wrong !?
