The only solution is transfer

The death toll from the simultaneous suicide bombings in Tel Aviv has now risen to 15-17. With the elections coming up, you'd figure that the Palestinians would get wise and halt their murder until the elections to help boost Labor's chances. But with Ariel Sharon acting more like Ehud Barak than the Ariel Sharon of the 1970s and 1980s, the Palestinians figure that they can get away with anything, even under a Sharon-led Likud government.

The only hope for an end to violence is that the Israeli populace becomes so polarized that they start voting Moledet, or pushing Likud far-right. Why? Because the only solution to this problem is transfer of Palestinians from Judea and Samaria, and Israeli Arabs from Israel proper. For a more complete discussion of the morality and politics of transfer, read this, this, and this. They're well worth the time (you can also check my archives for more material on the subject).
