    When the negotiations have finished, Palestine will recognize Israel as a democratic state and the homeland of the Jewish people, and Israel will recognize Palestine as a democratic state and the homeland of the Palestinian people. This is why peace requires two states, why the UN voted for partition into two states. According to Wikipedia, a homeland is the place to which an ethnic group holds a long history and a deep cultural association with —the country in which a particular national identity began. That's exactly what Israel is to the Jewish people, it always has been, and is recognized as such around the world. The Palestinians should have no trouble recognizing that.
