Do the Palestinian-Arabs want a state for themselves in peace next to the Jewish one or not?
It is an obvious question, but the answer to this question determines how the Jewish people, both Israeli and diaspora, should proceed going forward. If the answer to this question is “yes” then Israel and the Jewish people should embrace the ongoing peace process. However, if the answer to this question is “no” then Israel and the Jewish people should reject the ongoing peace process because it cannot possibly lead to peace.This is a very brief piece, but in my opinion it goes directly to the heart of the matter.
When the Jews established Israel what they wanted was autonomy for the Jewish people.
Is this what the Palestinian-Arabs actually want for themselves?
