Doesn't have to happen like that...there's such a thing as internal economies and they are not dependent on the outside (primarily).  This is what many poor countries and many poor areas need to focus upon...that and access to credit through means like revolving loan funds..

Of course, when it's convenient to your argument, you like to address the poor Sasha, just not in the context of the 'sacrosanct' discussion of the Palestinian people's problems...uh huh...

How guilt keeps some even from mentioning occupation! I know a good shrink in Sacramento. Are you too far from there?

Yeah, your guilt is that you're so obsessed with an occupation that you would condemn the rest of the world to a slow death by poverty - why would you make such false distinctions Sasha?

It is not for me to say whether the Jews or the Palestinians have 'first mover' rights to Israel/Palestine - but it is clear that both small people groups exist and you and I are going to have to DEAL with that (as Yusuf recently argues about moving on into the future.)

Give us 3 constructive steps - just 3 - that the Palestinian Authority/Government can take to promote peace and I'll give you 3 that Israel can take...I want to see if you can be positive on this board Mr. Sasha..

Very simple. We can all go forward. Disarm the US and keep Americans in quarantine for 148 years, [moderator edited] Though Yusuf says that will be too short a period.

But I believe their mediocre heads might change. Yet some will maintain their own stands in the International Gallery of Rogues and Scoundrels or just in the tarrace of the petty theives.

Did I ever mention any names?

You really do believe your ludicrous notion that the US is PURE EVIL - don't you Sasha?  How can anyone have such simplistic notions?

Very simple, Sir. When we talk of occupation, we don't run an hide behind poverty. If you are so keen on talking poverty, start a thread and we will discuss it, but no running from poverty to something else when someone makes so solid points.

US is PURE EVIL

Bertrand Russel is my guru. I never believed him all these years. Since I have seen your Richard Perls, Ken Adlemen, Condis, Feiths, Wolfowitz and your President "selling a war like redundant stock of some dud company" and your occupations I have begun to believe that my guru was after all right.

S: "when someone makes so solid points."

B: Aye, there's the rub...
Here's what you said, Sasha, in all your inimitable, pure and holy wisdom:

keep Americans in quarantine for 148 years, they may just become human or almost.

You really want to defend that somehow?

I told that to someone at the restaurant tonight. He said that 148 years will be too short a time for that to happen.

I am not joking and it's not just my fault, the US image needs a lot of denting and painting since Iraq and, more since Abu Gharaib, Falluja and the desecrations.

Another, interesting thing. A friend who runs a cable network phoned from Bolton (UK) tonight. He is planning a one and a half hour movie on Guantanamo Bay. Guess what? All the Islamic country rights sold out in one afternoon.

Only parleys with the likes of me would help you mend your country's image. Your excuses / explanations etc. don't wash in all the countries.
