"Gee, I'd really like to have that nice IKEA bookshelf, but I refuse to use a hammer or screwdriver to build it. Instead, I demand that you build it for me, then leave, or else I'll kill you." Since that has been the Arab position for 60 years vis-a-vis any Jewish home rule in Israel, the Swedish perspective is a warped as that bookshelf would be if the particle board its made of ever got wet. Some members of the Arab community, far from all, have come around to maving away from total rejectionism, but that movement has only been won by Israel's steadfast refusal to accept less and by demonstrating that it will indeed settle all of the land if the Arabs will not accept to live alongside Israel in peace. Sweden's failure (and the failure of what passes for "the left" these days) to grasp that dynamic is the basis of their fundamental misperception of the state of tis conflict.
