Can you please offer some optimism how we might prevail over this?

Nope.

As for "killing Yasser Arafat", the problem with assassinating Palestinian leaders is that there are still millions left, and they're growing faster than the Israelis are. So your only options are a) genocide or b) accommodation.

I don't see genocide or accomodation as viable choices. Only selective distribution of termination. If you kill enough of their leaders, no one will want to lead then. Or, they will have to stay hidden.

Optimism?? Israel will survive. That I know. Peace will not be known in the Middle East in our time. They have been fighting for three thousand years, so why stop now?

Cheers!

Israel's been trying this for the past three decades or so, how well do you think it's working?

Unless somebody gets a nuke.

But, alas, on this one I agree with you...
