The solution to the Arab/Israeli conflict, despite all the smoke and propaganda, is not that complicated. The Arabs living in the West Bank and Gaza must understand that Israel is here to stay and that continued violence against Israelis will hurt and damage the Arabs much, much more than it will harm the Israelis. Further concessions by Israel will only be interpreted as a sign of weakness and will encourage more violence by the Arabs. Israel did not ask for this 60+ year-old conflict, but it has no choice but to overwhelm its enemies. Wars only end with unambiguous victories, as ugly as they might be.
