I don't think Israel understands how tired many Palestinians, Arabs and Muslims are of the Israel-Palestine War. Though I suspect some of those who claim peace with the Pals is impossible understand it all too well and are terrified of it. The price of peace is the evacuation of the settlements unless changes are made to the Green Line by mutual consent. To ask the Palestinians to accept less than the 22% of the land under dispute is to rub their noses in the fact that most of the land they want and also have a legitimate claim to will remain Israeli. A peace settlement on this basis acknowledges that Arabs lost ground in Palestine by choosing war over peace in 1948,1967, and 1973 and seems the fairest compromise possible between these 2 immovable forces of Jewish will and Muslim will.
