    We knew what the price was to speak out against the establishment of our own state. Anyone who did was considered a traitor. So, expect unto others what was expected of you. We had our elements who wouldn't wait for someone to give us Israel on a silver plate; they went and killed innocent bystanders at the King David Hotel. Did that nullify our quest for a state of our own. Luckily not. That doesn't mean there aren't Palestinians who support a peaceful partner State of Israel. On the individual level, from my discussions with those in the territories, they'd support our right to exist, if they could only control their own destiny. We must stop being the problem and stand next to those in the lead for the solution - a peaceful, cooperative Palestine and Israel that will get the moral and financial backing of the entire world. Only the absolute diehards will oppose it and be marginalized in the process.
