    Just as the author of this article so rightly points out that Israeli negotiators must understand the cultural sensitivities of Israeli Arabs, is it not also true that Palestinian Arab negotiators must understand the cultural sensitivities of Israeli Jews? This cuts both ways, guys. Just as Israel must not delegitimise it's Arab citizen's sense of national identity, which may differ from the majority viewpoint -- it is paramount if this peace process is to work, that the Jewish people, feeling just as strong a connection to this land as it's Palestinian and Arab neighbours, can have a sense of security which comes from their natural rights being understood, respected and honoured. This issue must be handled with sensitivity by BOTH sides. Demanding the other side respects their rights is not the right way. A narrative msut be found that enables BOTH peoples to feel a sense of secure identity within thier homelands. This is an important part of the process.
