Without accepting Israel's legitimacy, its RIGHT to be, to exist as the Jewish people's nation-state, especially after so many decades of demonizing it, de-legitimizing it, actually attempting to wipe it off the face of earth, Jews, within and without their nation-state of Israel, will not be ready to lower their guards and take ADDITIONAL risks towards an accommodation of peaceful coexistence between Arab and Jew, between the Muslim-Arab world and the nation-state of the Jewish people, Israel. All that the Arabs, local and regional, need do is to commit, verbally to the idea, in Arabic, Hebrew and English, that they accept Israel's RIGHT - not only fact - to be, exist as the national home of the Jewish people. Their categorical refusal to do so for so long conveys a very strong message to us..., one that for some reason the Obama administration is deaf of hearing...!! I wonder, why...??
