There can be no lasting peace without justice. Rationality will bring justice, but zealotry will always be a barrier. For every single zealot Palestinian, I see ten zealot Israeli settlers that operate openly and with IDF protection. However every zealot Palestinian plus their family members are thoroughly suppressed by the IDF. There is no balance, but if there were a closure of settlements and a evacuation of settlers that despise Palestinians, a balance could be achieved. However the IDF must also leave the West Bank. The Saudi 2002 plan for peace can achieve that.
