It's been said before, but articles like this one help to remind you that if the shoe were on the other foot, and Palestinians were in control of a large number of Israelis, there would not be a large number of Israelis. The Pals want to wipe them out to the last man, woman or child. This is something more Americans need to realize:

As a result of Israel's offering to allow the PLO control over the West Bank and Gaza, and Israel's willingness to acquiesce in Palestinian statehood in the medium run, the PLO and its affiliates have murdered 1,300 Israelis, most of them civilians and many of them children, since foreswearing the use of violence. Proportionate to population, this is like 22 September 11ths for the United States. The world has grown so accustomed to the daily news reports of Palestinian barbarism that most have lost their shock value.

Think of that. If we had experienced the level of terrorism that Israel has since 1994 the death toll would be like 9/11 happening 22 times. Somehow I doubt that we would have handled it as well as Israel has.
