This is the basic problem in the Middle East. The Left is in denial about the hatred on the part of Muslims toward Israel. Here is video from May 2014 of a Palestinian girl explaining that generations of her family drill into her that Israel has no homeland – has no right to exist. The Palestinians do not want a state to call their own. They don’t want a two-state solution. They want a Final Solution. They want Israel to not exist.
Palestinian Authority Leader Mahmoud Abbas wants to claim he recognizes Israel as long he doesn’t recognize Israel as a “Jewish State.” But Israel gets to decide what Israel is! It is their own identity! The bottom line is that the Muslim World at large does not want Israel to exist. Period. No real peace can be made under these circumstances.
