Is it the fault of Israel? Of the Palestinians? Of both parties? David Brog, Executive Director of the Maccabee Task Force, shares the surprising answers.

Not Ready

Giving a state to the Palestinians is rather like setting up a 4-year-old in his/her own apartment and expecting the toddler to maintain it like an adult. Although the Palestinians' rejection doesn't arise out of their own realization of their immaturity but rather from a desire to own not just one apartment but the whole building!

Thank you

for an instructive video. It is a horrible shame that this part of the world is so destructive. Reality, the involed Arab states despise the Jews and until that attitude ceases, G_D willing,, this world and the world to come will live in misery. I had a wonderful political science teacher who taught that one of the major reasons that this conflict keeps going is that both the Arabs and the Jews are so similiar. If he was right, hopefully this ongoing horror, perhaps between brothers, will some day soon

Sadly true. G-d willing, may peace come soon!

At last! The truth!

When my family lived in Morocco, in the 1960s (due to my father's job), one of my teachers was an Israeli Arab refugee from the ARABS in Israel, who had murdered his brother and father- right in front of him- for refusing the ARAB order for all Arabs to flee Israel in 1947 because they just wanted to stay in Israel and live peacefully with the Jews. The rest of his family fled the OTHER ARABS, not the Jews. When we knew him, he had petitioned Israel to return there to live peacefully under Jewish rule. This man did not know we were Jewish ( the US State Department made us promise not to let anyone know we were Jewish), and had no reason to lie to us when he said that the people he hated were his own fellow Arabs, not the Jews. He also told us how the Israeli Arabs blocked the way into Jordan to make sure that an Arab "refugee" army would be formed at the border to make war on Israel to kill all the Jews and take all of Israel back.

Incredible, but not suprising
