Formula for Peace

I read your article regarding the distribution of cameras to Palestinians to record acts of terror against the Palestinians in the Territories. It is interesting that no one thought of providing cameras to the remaining people in Sderot to record the daily bombings perpetrated by the poor Palestinians. As you may recall this territory was given to the Palestinians as a peace gesture. The Israeli government is now considering seriously, giving the Palestinians land on the west bank which will make the small towns of Tel Aviv, Haifa, and the likes closer to potential bombings by the peace seeking Palestinians. You might also be reminded that the 48', 56', 73' wars were initiated by the Arab countries to "drive the Israeli's" into the sea. There has never been a retraction of that Palestinian / Arab goal.

Between 48' and 67' there was no Arab outcry for a Palestinian State. Furthermore, the current Palestinian demand is that all settlements be removed and no Jew remain in the "Palestinian" territory, however, Palestinians must be given the right to return to the Israeli territories. A formula for peace should normally include the ability for all people to live together in harmony in all territories. Shortly after the 67' war, the Arabs were given control of the temple mount. Jews are allowed minimal access to the mount and must not pray there although this is the most sacred real estate of the Jewish people. Is this a formula for peace?

The current Israeli Prime Minister should be told that if he truly wants peace with the peace loving Arab nations, he should be prepared to cede all of current day Israel to the peaceful Arab nations. This is their goal and they will settle for nothing less.
