Monster: I meant to say that Israel has more overt conflicts than say, Tasmania. I meant to say that there's a very tense situation between the Israelites and Palestinians, hence the numerous Peace talks that were orginized throughout the end of the XX century. If there's a need for a peace talk, I'm not making much of a leap if I view the concept of Israel as 'peaceful' (peaceful meaning, as dictionary.com defines it: Undisturbed by strife, turmoil, or disagreement; tranquil) country as laughable.
I never meant to say that Israeli people were some kind of peace-hating warmongers. The second definition of peaceful (peaceful2= inclined or disposed to peace; peaceable) might've made you, Moster, think I meant it that way. In hindsight, I see how my words might've been misinterpreted. I think people in Israel might want what everyone wants: live their lives in peace.
Danyet: Perhaps (most likely) my ideas on the Middle East situation are wrong, I never claimed to be an expert on the subject. I was just giving my opinion, like everyone else on the board.
