E: "Arab acceptance of Israel`s right to be, to exist as the nation-state of the Jewish people." I see you put a comma in there. Good, because there are, indeed, two different statements in that one sentence. E: "Historically and to this day the only matter that truly prevents peace between Arab and Jew, between Israel and its Arab neighbors"... I'm curious, Eitan: what has a 42+ year policy of occupation and colonial expansionism have to do with "Israel`s right to be, to exist as the nation-state of the Jewish people"? They do instead seem to point to an Israeli "right" to seek to expand, expand, expand at the expense of its neighbours. Which is not a very neighbourly thing to do, irrespective of wether its being done by Jews, Hindus, Germans, or Mongolians.....
