The Palestianians, supported by the Arab countries in the past, have done nothing but wage violence, even in the tiny desert is was in 1948 initially. Ever since then, Israeli citizens have been attacked by armies - multiple at times, rockets raining down on them, suicide bombers, buses being blow up etc etc etc...denail of their right to exist...yet most believe thats ok, Israel has not right to demand a right to exist and for its security....but should hand over state to people who are hell bent on its destruction. This is niave, unrealstic and can and will never happen. NO one would allow a neighbor to move in next door whose plan to kill you...period. Settlements, occupation, land theft( from who ???) is all very insignificant to Israel's concern of life and death. The Palestinian people and Arabs neeed to ensure Israel's security then magic will happen. That has been the request since 1948...if only that had happned palestine whould much larger country by now, but instead they chose voilent and defiant option then, and continue down that path today.
