Based on irreversible pan-Islamist and pan-Arabist dogma, the conflict relates to Arab refusal to accept the "existence" of a sovereign Jewish state in what they consider Allah-given Arab-Islamic land (Dar-ul-Islam). No amount of territorial concessions by Israel can lead to any lasting coexistence that will alter the above reality. On the contrary, by making Israel more vulnerable and Arabs more hostile, such concessions can only encourage more bloody wars. Pursuing so-called "Palestinian" leaders will not change anything, since they are only surrogates of above pan-Islamist (Hamas) and pan-Arabist (Fatah) dogma. Both Hamas and Fatah covenants are just another confirmation of such realty.
