Not much cause for hope

Reader comment on item: Palestinians Who Helped Create Israel

Mr. Pipes writes:

This offers cause for hope; indeed, were the 20 percent of Palestinians who accept Israel expanded to 60 percent, the Arab-Israeli conflict would close down.
Actually you need something a lot stronger. You need 60 percent, say, who not only accept Israel, but are both willing and able to wage a civil war if necessary to suppress the other 40 percent of Palestinians who would continue the armed struggle to liberate all of Palestine, from the river to the sea.
