    This asks Israel to be responsible for creating the desire for peace in the Palestinians. It's entirely up to the Palestinians to create that desire in themselves. Israel only gets involved at this level, because it's so desiring of peace itself. But it can not acheive taking responsilbity for others. It wants to. Israelis want to believe they can create the peace singlehandedly with articles like this. Sadly, it takes a desire deeply rooted in Palestinians, to like peace better than anything else. (And my guess is that if the rest of the Arab world wasn't holding them responible for keeping pressure on Israel, the Palestinians would have made peace by now so that they could have a life.) On the PR front Israelis need to realize that they wishfulness for having this impact, effects what they say, and in the turn the rest of the world then holds them responsible for others in a way that no one, and no country can achieve.
