It's like an addict blaming his employer for supplying the money/provisions/support for the habit. It's also revisionist - looking back on the position post recognition or willingness to recognise Israel. Egypt and Jordan had to concede to Palestinians and make peace with Israel. From then, 67 borders was possible - but until right of return agreement without any peace. The problem has been the development of two confronting nationalisms in a long drawn out peace process - if this was deliberate on the Arab side, what would have worked?
