    What israel needs to understand is that the Muslim world whether they are Shia or Sunni have nothing against the Israeli people. But it is the treatment of the Palestinians that horrifies and angers everyone else. Regardless of there race, or religion, Israeli policies are humiliating to the western world which speaks of democracy and co-existance but at the same time has the burden of defending Israels actions against an occupied people. Remember Palestinians are both Muslims and Christians, at the same time it is the Muslim leaders of some arab states and christian leaders of the western states that are supporting Israel. This will happen no longer as the masses have now spoken. Israel needs to stop finding excuses to not make peace as it is in the interest of the whole world. The palentinian papers from Aljazeera show how negative and hopeless the peace talks have been due to the stubbness of the israeli leaders and the knesset. If Israel is serious about peace and democracy then it needs to truly seek peace and not depend on its military might to secure its interest becase as we all know every dog has its day. We in the UK support Israels right to exist but we will not support its blatent agreesion and mistreatment of an opressed and occupied people who do seek nothing but justice and peace.
