The basic thrust of Palastinian thought is that Israel is illegitimate, that the Jewish people have no right to a state in the area, and that over time one way or another the Jewish State will disappear. This is the major reason why Arafat turned down a two state solution at Camp David. They are also willing to glorify murder of Jews as "resistence" which is why they supported the naming of a Ramallah square after a terrorist who murdered Jews. What we ask of Palastinains is basic respect of Jews as a people, not just a tolerated (in varying degrees) minority in Arab lands. Dershewitz is correct in noting that the Israeli right should freeze building in E. Jerusalem and how equivical the Palastinain response is likely to be.
