Israeli tolerance made it possible for an Arab terrorist to murder Ari Fuld. The Arab murderer even stopped and ordered falafel at a local Israeli stand frequented by both Arabs and Jews before his attack. Jews who enter Arab villages are lynched.
Despite many challenges, Israelis seem more content with their lives than most people in the world, including most Western countries. While the Jewish state cherishes its past, it is firmly focused on the future.
Israeli concessions only lead to more Arab demands for further Israeli concessions. The self-appointed scaremongering industry warning of the “last chance for peace” undermines the prospects of genuine peace.
Arabs and Jews have vastly different historical experiences that dramatically affected their respective cultures, values and mindset. To Jews compromise is a virtue; for Arabs, an invitation for further aggression.
Europe's policies have systematically undermined any prospects of peace in the Middle East. Instead of promoting a conclusion of the conflict, Europe has perpetuated it for ideological and commercial reasons.
