The idea of a Ghandian style march into the muzzles doesn't seem to quite
fit into Arab political culture.
Non-violent resistance to the Israelis -- could it be sold as a kind of
"martyrdom" ? That underlying sentiment -- at a much smaller scale --
motivates everyone who goes limp and allows themselves to be arrested in any
non-violent protest. But the very idea of passive resistance seems
peculiarly incongruent in the current mid_East situation. For that very
reason it would be of tremendous moral force and would awaken a global
response of support. One would have to wonder however, whether the Israelis
wouldn't just pull another "highway of death" on such marchers.
