The only core issue in the conflict is the total refusal of the Arabs, Palestinian and otherwise, to accept Israel`s legitimacy as the nation-state of the Jewish people.~ I therefore suggest that the international community concentrate on demanding of the Arabs to deal with this core issue instead of attempting to evade it.-Eitan This issue is not the core issue. What Israel calls itself is no one?s business but Israel?s. The land is the core issue. Arafat recognized the state of Israel as other countries have, including America. This is ridiculous.
