Fly in the Ointment

Reader comment on item: The Three-Way Option: Arab States, Israel, Palestinians

Submitted by John Nudge (United States), Jan 25, 2017 at 14:28

All these ideas ignore the biggest fly in the ointment - Islam. The irrational hatred Muslims have for Jews is the number one barrier to peace in the Middle East. It's the elephant in the room, the 800 lb gorilla no one wants to acknowledge that has stopped all attempts to get the Palestinians and Israelis to agree on a plan. Hamas and Hezbollah don't want peace with Israel. Never have and never will.
