    Currently the situation does not look good. In addition to the Palestinians we see also that most of the Arab world is against Israel. Also, we see that support for Israel throughout the world is also dissolving. The way things are going now, it should now be clear, offers no solution. There can be no peace, no 2 state solution, etc. under the way things are currently structured. So what can work? The people of Israel need to focus on the most important thing that they can focus on: Their unity. They must unite as a people not simply to win some war, etc. but because this is what they should strive for. In the distant past this was understood. This is because at one time Israel lived life by the rule of "Love your neighbor as thyself," under the mutual guarantee, the arvut. They believed that they should be a light to the nations, to lead. And while Israel has long since left this way of life, it is still needed. The people of Israel must unite and lead by example again. They must show their neighbors and the rest of the world what is important: Unity. Only this can work today to build a foundation for future peace.
