Palestinian Identity Is Based on the Elimination of Israel – Dror Eydar
The Arabs in the West Bank and Gaza don’t have a positive “Palestinian nationality” that distinguishes them from the rest of the Arabs of the Middle East. The thing that unites them is the rejection of Jewish sovereignty and the elimination of the State of Israel. This is their identity. It’s not that they want a state, but rather that they don’t want us to have one.
No Arab or Palestinian leader thinks that the conflict began in 1967 when Israel seized territory in the Six-Day War. They talk about 1948, and some even begin with the 1917 Balfour Declaration. The Arabs of the region won’t agree to any solution other than reverting back to the point in history that they have chosen – before the establishment of the State of Israel. (Israel Hayom)
