Chron board makes indelicate gaffe in Israel piece

Today, the Chron runs a decent editorial applauding Ariel Sharon's plan to withdraw Jewish settlers from Gaza. It's fairly unremarkable, except for this:
Pulling out is not a final solution. Some Palestinians continue suicide bombings and rocket attacks against Israelis, even as other Palestinians protest the miles of barriers Israel is constructing to protect against attack.
When pondering the future of the Jewish state, the Chronicle's editors can't think of a better turn of phrase than "final solution?" Brilliant wording, guys.

They used that exact phrase?

And yet, they showed sensitivity with James Byrd's family in avoiding calling the street where he was killed "the main drag of Jasper."
