According to Sharia law, the waging of a Holy War of Extermination (Jihad) against Infidel nations is every devout Arab's command, and is to be waged until Infidels accept one of 3 choices: (a) Become Muslim; (b) Become an oppressed Dhimmi minority under Islamic rule; (c) Death. There are only 2 ways to prevent this: (a) Decisively defeat the Arab attackers and expel them beyond insurmountable boundaries (happened in history only in Iberia, Sicily, Malta); (b) A temporary truce ("Hudna") which they can sign for up to 10 years, until they feel strong enough to renew their attacks and offer above 3 choices again. Arab leaders would rather eat Pork than break the above Sharia commands. If they break them, their verdict would be certain death... Just like Sadat after Camp David I, or as Arafat said if he were to sign Camp David II. There you have it: The entire foundation of the current conflict explained in less than 20 lines! The rest is just empty talk...
