    You happen to be very wrong! We have a very warm relationship with some of our arab neighbors. We visit them daily and they visit us daily. We care deeply about them. We help them in many ways - mostly medical but also socially. Our relationship was better prior to Arafat's arrival in 1994 and became somewhat uncomfortable during the the years between 2000-5 at the height of the intifada, however things are slowely going back to normal. IN the eighties and early nineties we went to their weddings and visited them on holidays, We hope things get better - from our perspective peace with mutual respect is a real possibility. For the sake of peace the Israeli left who have a positive relationship with the PA leadership should explain to them that Israel will never go back to 67 borders but if they come to the table today they will get more than if they start another intifada. They turned down peace in 38,48,67,and 2000 each time the offer got less.
