Not to mention the palestinians of the diaspora from around the world who are longing to come back to the land of their ancestors, get a double nationality or simply spend some precious time there. That, israelis will never ever be able to erase it. The army can kill, racist laws can be passed, history can be rewritten, palestinians will remain. If Israel wants peace, there will be peace. Occupation, arrogance and brutality are not peace.
