Hearts vs. pride

Reader comment on item: Palestinians Who Helped Create Israel

Submitted by Rebecca Moulds (United States), Mar 26, 2009 at 07:06

A "Palestinian change of heart" is what is needed but heart changes cannot be forced, they come from deep conviction within the human psyche, and conviction stems from realisation that a wrong has been committed and needs to be righted. Both peoples must accept each other, and Israel has every right to exist but until more Palestinians---and the rest of the world--- accept this, there will be conflict but little change of hearts and the "love thy neighbour" policy will never come to fruition.
