When you think of a people struggling to have a country, typically it means they are being denied one. That is not the case here. Israel has accepted the two state solution and the Palestinians right to have a country, so, what's the beef? Is it the settlements? Of course not! They could have had a country anytime they wanted since the last several Israeli administrations have agreed to it. With 93% of the borders already settled why don't the Palestinians have their country? Why do they teach the Palestinian children that Israel has no right to exist? Why do the schoolbook maps show NO Israel, but only Palestine where Israel presently exists? The question must asked, what do the Palestinians actually want? Is it just a country...which they could already have...or is it something more?
