Try as you might, the world just isnt all black and white.

But ofcourse, demonizing the opposition do help with any moral qualms one might have, history has proven that again and again. Just because LGF and Fox reports all Hezbollah soldiers hide behind small lebanese girls while firing off the katushas, doesnt necessarily make it all true. But then again most people dont necessarily want the truth, they want and accept only information that confirms and/or strengthens any preconcieved opinion they might have.

There is peace now, albeit a very fragile one. For peace to endure, Israel cant enforce its will military on its neighbours. To quote a jew, whos intellect probably surpass us both: "You cannot simultaneously prevent and prepare for war." - Albert Einstein -. In the continuance, concessions will have to be made, bitter pills will have to be swallowed, and Israel, as the strong part, probably will have to do the lions share. But I'm not holding my breath.
