It's like why isn't there peace in the ME? The Arabs, like yourself, blame the settlements or occupation. I ask why are there settlements and occupation? Because over five Arab armies attacked Israel and lost the war. BTW, nothing was that much different prior to 1967, Arab riots, massacres of Jewish people terrorism was the same. So why would you blame the settlements or occupation, since it was the same when there were NO settlements and NO occupation. How convenient!
