    I thank Otto Brand for his suggestion and analysis. Israel does not crave "recognition". It is however clear that there can be no peace unless there is an agreement describing secure borders. Lakshmi shows why peace with Palestinians is such an illusion. The 1948 partition was passed by the General Assembly and backed by over 2/3s of the nations voting. The legal right for a State of Israel is clear. The Arab countries as well as the Palestinians rejected partition. I suggest the "crimes" that are suggested are, in reality, Palestinian crimes. The bombing of Israeli civilian targets started pre 1948. To paraphrase Abba Eban, the Palestinians have never wasted a chance to waste a chance. There may well be a Palestinian state some day, but only if new leadership emerges. Leadership that can recognize a Jewish State with a Muslim and Christian minority in its midst. Before yelling apartheid it might be good to remember which Arab states declare themselves to be Muslim by law
