When you've been scattered to the 4 corners of the world and subjected to pogroms, inquisitions, massacres,a Holocaust and 2000 years forced separation from your homeland, then "maybe" you can call yourself "immortal". Meanwhile you've only been gone for 58 years and you only began to accept the mantle of "palestinian people" in 1950's. So a little humility and alot of patience is called for. There is optimism amongst the Jewish people borne of generations of fortitude and betterment. Only such optimism can make the desert bloom and build the cities up. An optimism sadly lacking in many of Israel's neighbours, who's emotions seem to be governed more by desire for revenge than justice.
