    'Israelis, in turn, feels misunderstood: After all, their country faces very real threats: Iran keeps calling for Israel's destruction, and may become a nuclear power. Hezbollah is armed to the teeth with rockets, and it has shown that it is willing to use them against Israel's population centres. Hamas rules Gaza, and its official position is that it will never accept Israel's existence. So why doesn't the world understand us?' Because anybody who cares to study the history knows that all of the above is nonsense. Either completely untrue, or substantially untrue. 'There is also another, real problem: The Palestinians as yet have to state explicitly that they renounce the right of return to Israel inside the 1967 lines' Just why would the Palestinians renounce the right to return to their country? Occupiers seldom survive over time. I believe that in the modern world it is even less likely to be successful. One democratic state, with the return of land and reparations are probably the best Israelis can hope for. Israel as a concept will, I believe prove to be the most stupid political deal ever made.
