There is no point in Israel capitulating before a point where Palestinians are ready to accept and thereby support through agreements, Israel as a Jewish State. Palestinian's claim rights. Jews have the right to a Jewish State, protected in agreements. Any weakness shown by Israel until this happens will only invite greater pressure and effectively make things even worse. Israeli's must stop pretending that giving in to small gestures will pave the way to peace. The opposite is true, and Israeli's must stand and face the onslaught. This is no other alternative. And ironically this is the only way to gain respect in the Middle East. Palestinians need to understand that a future state must be linked to real peace. The insistance of 1967 borders speaks to continued conflict and further wars.
