It is an obvious rhetorical trick to put two views as extreme but equally balanced opposites and then to raise a flag somewhere in between and claim moderation and objectivity. Take the issue of where Arabs in Israel can live. I think that there are far more Arabs in majority Jewish towns in Israel than Jews living in majority Arab towns in Israel. Jews in Jejoula or Kfar Kassem? Pretty rare if it exists at all. But aside from that fudging how about the political balance. Fatah is the ruling authority in the PA and holds that all Jews must be evacuated from their homes in the areas they will control. In the Knesset there maybe only one member claims similar for Arabs in '48 Israel. And we have a court system that would never allow for it in any case. That isn't a difference in degree but a profound difference. You just have a goal of using the worse to condemn the bad (in Jews) or to excuse the bad (the PA).
