What the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict is really about (4)

[T]he Arab-Israeli conflict... has a source, and it is the refusal to acknowledge that source - rather than any failure to "engage" - that is the main reason for the failure of decades of peacemaking. ...

[T]he engine of the conflict is the Arab refusal to accept Jewish history, peoplehood or sovereignty anywhere in the Land of Israel.

[T]he Arabs will not end the conflict... so long as they still have hopes that Israel will become delegitimized and will weaken and disappear.
