Mark Klein (M.D) reflects the opinions and attitudes of many responders on this talkback, who not only were not born in, and relate to life in Mandatory Palestine, but also refuse to recognize the substantive change that has taken place in the purposefulness of the Jewish endeavor in Palestine and later Israel. Israel has failed utterly to integrate into the region and has failed in building an equitable society. It has won key wars and battles but failed to secure peace with adversaries who should not and will not go away. Moshe Dayan admitted publicly that Israeli settlements were built on the ruins of Palestinian villages. 'Joshua' told the 'Israelites' as much- they settled on land owned and cultivated by the indigenous population. As long as Israelis do not accept that fact there will be no peace.
