What the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict is really about

Ya'acov Lozowick: "The lines of discussion are indeed becoming ever more clear, even if the team at the White House doesn’t see it. The issue is the right of the Jews to sovereignty in their ancestral homeland. Not the right of the Palestinians; that has already been accepted by any fair minded person. It’s the right of the Jews which is being discussed, evaluated, and in many cases rejected. This is what the Jews need firmly to keep in mind."

Shmuel Rosner
: " It is obvious that a solution [to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict] cannot be realized before there is a change in the Palestinian position and the Palestinians accept Israel's right to exist in peace and security as a Jewish state. The reason the Palestinians refuse to accept this is because for them this ins not a territorial dispute, but an existential conflict. The media's failure to report this most basic point, the evidence of it, and the implications of it, creates a dangerously misleading portrayal of the situation and prospects for its its resolution."
