    As long as people keep saying the problem is settlements and occupation there will never be a solution! The problem is not settlements and occupation. The problem is that the Arabs are not committed to peace - plain and simple the Arabs are not committed to peace. If the Arabs were committed to peace they would be willing to compromise for peace!! The Arabs were never required to make concrete concessions!! The fact is that if the Arabs saw peace as a value they would be preaching love, tolerance and respect in mosques and schools. They wouldn't be calling streets after suicide bombers!! Israel is always required to make concrete concessions: In 1956 we gave bk the Sinai. In 1982 we gave bk the sinai again. In Oslo we gave land to the PA. In 2005 we gave up Gush Katif. By Israel making these unbelievable gestures we showed how valuable peace is to Israel. The Arabs keep claiming that they are the victims, so they don't have to make concessions!! The road to peace is to require that the Arabs accept that they are at fault in this conflict and that they must make concessions!! The Arabs are 100% at fault for the Palestinian -Israeli conflict. The Arabs said no to peace in 1947 with the partition plan. The Arabs said NO NO NO in 1967 at Khartom! The Arabs said no in 2000 in Camp David! The solution will come when we stop feeling that Israel has to give up everything. Israel must demand that the PA makes serious concessions 1) Accepting that Israel is not going bk to 67 borders 2) Israel will keep the IDF on the Jordan border 3) Jews can establish a house of worship on the Temple mount and share rights just like in Maarat Hamachpelah
