some of the Jewish settlement used terrorism, such as the Lehi organization, but most of them tried to negotiate, something which the arabs at that time didn't take even to consider. humm, no. actually, they now have enough weapons to satisfy a small army, including light weapons, MGs, anti-tank missiles, grenades, etc. nothing compared to the Israeli side, yes, but still the image of the small Palestinian boy throwing a rock at an Israeli tank has passed. the conflict is much more complicated than you think. it wont be settled by that alone. what about east Jerusalem? the Right of Return and such Palestinian demands? as long as these terms are not fulfilled, Hamas will just keep its Jihad against Israel.
