    It is not the repsonsibility of the Palestinians to do it for them. Israel's commitment to a two state solution has yet to be proven beyond verbal statements made under pressure. The of the current Knesset majority openly denounces the concept and is continuing a policy on the ground that makes that goal simply unattainable. Further, reports, studies and commissions by the Israeli government itself indicate clearly that Arab citizens of Israel are not equal and have not been since the inception of the state. MOdels that have been proposed and implemented to work toward defusing the ethnic and religious rivalry and animosity in Northern Ireland have not be tried in Israel. The majoirty of the nationalist/religoius controlling camp does not want integration for two reasons. Religoius: it would lead to intermanrriage with non-Jews and nationalistic: it would eventually lead to a binational state which would be the demise of their version of the zionist dream. Palestinians in 2010 may not like the country that is resposnible for the Naqba and continues in the WB & EJ to destroy any possibleity of land for peace, but the do recognise its existence and in doing so they are recognising that it is not just another Arab state but has a Jewish majority with a rightful claim to shared territory. Revisionist zionism does not recognise their rights and surely you can see that Israel today is the Israel of lieberman, Eldad and yishai.
