    There has been no indication, no proof, no evidence, or declaration by the enemies of Israel that withdrawing from territories and giving in to the demands of the PLO that this will mean peace. On the contrary, the PLO charter, the phased plan, the fact that the PLO was formed in 1964, OSLO, Fatah websites, interviews of members of the PA have made it very clear that the PLO and other enemies of Israel won't rest, won't make peace till Israel is removed. This is not speculation on my part, but fact. If a person cares to find this out they can look online to find it. Look at the maps of the PA, look at interviews of the officials, listen to their language used and the inflexible plans that are being offered in the guise to make peace and it's obvious. The PLO must tel it's people that they lost the wars waged against Israel and any final agreement that is accepted is for the best, and that Israel is legitimate and here to stay. It must instruct it's people that Jews belong to the land and not negate Jewish legitimacy to Israel as they are doing now. This is how peace is made, just giving land up has proven to only embolden Israel's enemies. Do you want another hundred years of conflict or peace? I want peace and I guarantee that appeasement and furthering the PLO phased plan will only lead to more misery for both people.
