    During the first Intifada, an important Jerusalem Arab newspaper editor (also a member of the PLO and the PNC) told a group of North American visitors to whom he spoke in East Jerusalem, that the largest problem his people faced was not Israel but (and I quote him verbatim) "My Arab brothers continue to be willing to fight to the last Palestinian". That is how it has been since they attacked reborn Israel in 1948; how it has been in all the wars they've lost since and they still have the nerve and the gall to demand that everything be restored to exactly the way it was before June of 1967 when they messed up big time and lost so much. It is amazing that more Palestinian intellectuals (and there are many) cannot see the angusihing failure of the Arab League on the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. For nearly 60 years now, the Arab nations have maintained a steadfast refusal to do anything but settle for everything. Hence, not surprising they've achieved nothing.Perhaps they will never learn
