Short Path to Peace is Terribly Long

Reader comment on item: Polls, Palestinians and the Path to Peace

Submitted by Marvin Diamond (United States), Feb 18, 2003 at 17:31

Your article clearly delineates an unvarnished solution to the current Arab war against Israel. Now if the world's governments, including the United States, would stop trying to force a solution that satisfies its own agendas and recognizes that Israel cannot be beguiled or bludgeoned into accepting its ultimate destruction, a true peace can be achieved. Such a peace can result if only the Palestinians truly interested in coexistence with their neighbor clean out their dens of hatred and come to the table with clean hands, they will find Israel willing and able to be their neighbor.
And, the only precondition the Arabs will have to accept is that there is no right of return, and Jerusalem is not their capital. They will see the settlements that have been a thorn in both sides for so long disappear.
