    I agree that is wrong to think that anyone does not "deserve" peace. I don't think that that is the problem. When 80% of Palestine was given independence and renamed Jordan, Jews didn't complain much. When the UN voted to partition the remaining 20% into 2 states with borders and govts based on demographic majority, the overwhelming majority of Jews accepted it. Many Arabs stayed. There are now over 1.3 Million Arab Israeli citizens. Arabs ethnically cleansed all Jews they could. In Israel anyone can own land. It is a death penalty crime for Jews to own land in Palestine under PA law. The problem (from the Israeli side) is almost entirely not a question of "deserving" peace, but of trusting that the other side wants peace. We are indeed all human beings, deserving respect and dignity. We are in a terrible state. I hope we can reverse the demonization of "the other" and achieve real and lasting peace among equals. Salaam.
