This is the problem with some of the members of not only this Likud-led coalition, but in fact the Jewish community-at-large, whether in Israel or in the Diaspora. They want to sustain this diplomatic impasse rather than make these "painful concessions" and sustain the feelings of mistrust or bitterness between Jews and Arabs because of our historical narrative of conflict and the great difficulty of it all. It is most certainly a difficult road to recovery, because the deceased cannot be brought back to life, especially those whose lives were lost at a young age. For example, Likud Knesset member, Benny Begin's son was killed on a F16 training accident over the Mediterranean Sea. Sitting next to him in the cockpit, was also a young IAF trainee, who happens to be the nephew of a fellow artist in my Israeli Artists Group, also lost his life. But this fellow artist and her sister's political ideology are more in line to resolving the conflict by making the territorial concessions, probably including parts of East Jerusalem, rather than continuing the dispute which would be carried onto future generations. Two different Israeli families who experienced unimaginable tragedies, yet diverse responses to the Middle East conflict. I would agree with the latter family's pragmatic and reasonable approach.
