    That's pretty consistent with the roughly 20% of Israeli population that are Haredi and advocate for the ethnic cleansing of eretz Israel when you include the portion of the non haredi jews in Israel that are advocating exactly the same thing. The obstacle for peace cannot be lain simply at the doorstep of the Palestinians. I should also mention that the median age in the west bank is 21.3 years old while the median age in Gaza is 17.7 years old. This means that the vast majority of the population is under 19. Need I remind you how teenagers have the tendency to see things as black or white ? When Israel goes to war against Palestine, they are going to war against children. Palestinians are essentially powerless whereas Israel has one of the best armed and funded militaries in the world and abuses that power. Would you tell your children to submit to bullies too and give them whatever they want or would you want them to stand up for themselves. Telling the teacher(UN) hasn't worked.
