You build your entire narrative on the assumption that there will be a war. Arabs in general, and Palestinians in particular, know that a war will is not suited to achieve Palestinian aspirations of freedom.

You seem to have developed a strange comfort zone in that Arabs want so slaughter Jews, we don't, all what we want and care for, is for the Palestinians to gain their freedom, and run their affairs in peace with Israel according to UN partition mandates, that's all. If you want to turn this into a existential issue for the Jewish population of Israel, suit yourself. We have lived in this region for eons, the last 60 odd years is just a blip, and it will pass, and time is on our side, and you know it.
