IF all that Palestinians had to do was recognize the zionist entity as jewish and in return the occupation would end and the zionists would retreat behind the pre-1967 borders, then the Palestinians would have recognized the zionist entity as a jewish state a long time ago. But the truth is, the zionists want all of Palestine and they need the Palestinians to recognize their state as jewish so that the zionists can then say "You just recognized all areas under our control a a part of our jewish state." The palestinians would then give away the W. Bank and Jerusalem over to the zionists. That's why the Palestinians cannot and will not recognize the zionist entity as a jewish state.
