Arab communities worry over lack of personal safety and trust that police will take action.01:20 02.05.16 | 1 comments
Ravi: The West Bank and Gaza were invaded as a result of the unanimous decision of many Arab states to destroy Israel 100 %. Later, Israel offered the creation of a Palestinian state in West Bank and Gaza in exchange for peace (i.e. in exchange for the promise that the Palestinian constitution would remove the statement "that Israel has no right to exist and that the 1967 or even the 1949 borders are illegal.") Apparently the Palestinian groups refused to remove that sentence from their constitution, even after Israel made a good will gesture by totally withdrawing from Gaza and even after Israel promised to do the same in the West Bank if only the Palestinians agreed to recognize Israel. I am very much in favor of long term peace and tolerance, as well as coexistence. But if the extremist governments of the Palestinians say that they will use the Israeli withdrawal to bring in missiles to later bombard all of Israel then this would make it difficult for Israel to withdraw.
