It is certainly true that Israel's neighbors have, in decades past, tried to destroy Israel. They failed. It is also true that the Pals and most arab states would like to see Israel destroyed. Given Zionist conduct wrongly denying refugees' rights in 1948 and 40 years of brutal occupation, their hatred is imminently understandable. But they also know Israel is not going away. Even though the IDF have turned to wimps (brutalizing women and children do that to armies), the US will never let it happen. Poll after poll have shown that the vast majority of Palestinians want a 2 state peace. Hamas, Islamic Jihad, etc. want to destroy Israel but even they envision such a miracle only in some distant future. Peace begets peace and war begets war. Given a chance at a decent life, very few Pals would choose to continue the current nightmare as long as they do not have to surrender all rights and rightfully owned land. Once peace breaks out, it will likely continue.
