    You write as if Israel is totally innocent. As an Arab, I know very well that Arab governments have been very blind, ignorant, and cruel in their policies against Israel. Nonetheless, Israel's colonization of Palestinian territory - regardless of what Zionism mandates, it would be selfish to disregard the humane existence of the Palestinians - has further polarized the Arab population. Moreover, Israel possess one of the world's largest reserves of nuclear weapons - are we not entitled to fear that just as much as Israelis fear Iran? Really in the end both sides have made the same mistakes. Every new military strategy pursued by both Israel and its Arab neighbors promises more unjust deaths to both Israeli and Palestinian children. If we were ALL peaceful and disarmed, coexistence would be less of an impossible vision as it is today. Israel and Palestine would coexist harmoniously. A very militaristic peace agreement would do nothing to solve your concern - the Arab-Israeli hatred that has further exacerbated the political issue.
