That doesn't mean there wasn't an aspiration among Jews to form a state. Denying the existence of the Pal people appears as contemptable to the rest of the world as the Hamas leadership trying to argue that Jews had no historical tie to the holy land. With respect to the Palestinian's divided government, have you considered Israel's active role, increasing in the last decade, in ensuring political and geo division of the Pal people with the specific aim of weakening their leadership? I would recommend a general spirit of reconciliation and acceptance of the other's narrative, as this will be essential if we are to have any hope for peace in the middle east.
