Stupid or evil

Reader comment on item: Obama's Failed Middle East Speech

It's hard to imagine how a man in his position could be ignorant of every step the State of Israel (and before that the Jewish Agency for Palestine) has made to create and sustain a lasting peace with their neighbors nor be equally ignorant of the adamant refusal of the Arab Palestinian population and the Arab nations as a whole to reject at every opportunity any possibility of such a peace.

Peaceful coexistence has never been on the minds of Arab Palestinians. Never has there been the slightest attempt to prepare their people for peace. Their textbooks roil with hatred and bloodlust. War after war to annihilate the Jewish state do not speak eloquently for the peaceful intentions of Israel's neighbors. Suicide bombers the same.
