The Arab nations should have done this 1947 both for moral reasons and for historical reasons, even if the plan may have been "unfair." The narrative of the Arab-Israeli conflict may have been different and true peace between the grandchildren of Abraham could have not only been possible and may have attained greater advantages to all the peoples of the region and the world. I hope the Arabs are genuine in the peace initiative. I hope Netanyahu, and with him, the Israeli Jewish public is also and is willing to take that risk. Reversing the injustice to the Palestinians is also a moral imperative and guarantees the long term peace and stability and provides the necessary guarantees Israel need. As an Arab and Muslim, I declare that I will be the first to do that. But let my hands untied so I can show up to declare by freeing the Palestinian people.
