Why won't Israel make peace?

You've probably heard this before. The gentile nations say they want peace between Arab and Jew. The gentile nations say even the Arabs want peace. 

But these nations also say Israel refuses peace. They say, the best anyone can do is to try to understand why Israel is so stubborn. 

 If you follow--and believe--the world's mainstream media, here's the 'truth' you believe: The Arabs want peace (Eldad Benari, "Blair: Arab states will normalize Israel ties for peace talks", arutzsheva, May 25, 2016). The US wants peace (Carol Lee, Rory Jones, "White House working on renewed Mideast peace push", wsj, March 7, 2016.

France wants peace ("France launches bid to revive stalled Israeli-Palestinian peace talks", france24, March 9, 2016). 

Sweden wants peace ("Sweden engages for peace and stability as a friend of israel", haaretz, November 10, 2015). 

But always, Israel refuses. Yes, Israel says it wants 'peace'. But it won't move off 'square one'. 

For example, here's what the world says about Israel's 'commitment' to peace:

-Eman Elshaikh, "Israel's 'peaceful' racism against Palestinians", muftah, April 27, 2016.

 -Uri Dromi, "If it wants peace, Israel must take the initiative", miamiherald, June 30, 2016.

-Zack Sabella, "The US must accept that Israeli leadership wants Apartheid, not peace", huffingtonpost, November 4, 2015.

-Mitchel Plitnick, "Understanding Netanyahu's rejection of the Arab peace initiative", foundationformiddleeastpeace, June 13, 2016.

Such headlines send a message. That message is, Israel is the hateful one; when will you realize that Israel harms us all?

But then, just as you've begun to wonder if perhaps the world was actually correct about Israel after all, you discover different headlines. What are you to make of these?

-David Harris, "The Palestinians do not want peace despite what the Media tells you", thealgemeiner, July 8, 2014.

-JniMedia, "New survey reveals Majority of Palestinians hate ISIS and Israel", breakingisraelnews, November 19, 2015.

-Khaled Abu Toameh, "Palestinians: We hate you even if you [Israelis] support us", gatestoneinstitute, October 3, 2014. 

Yuval Steinitz, "How Palestinian hate prevents peace", newyorktimes, October 13, 2015.

Luke Moon, "What happens when a Palestinian doesn't hate Israel enough?", federalist, May 1, 2014.

Tony Attanasio, "Pakistan and the training of  young Palestinians to hate Israel", tonyattanasioblog, no date.

Tzipi Hotolevy, "Palestinian incitement; hate speech that kills", newsweek, January 31, 2016.

Fred Maroun, "Palestinians: peace starts with facing the harsh reality of [Arab Jew-] hate", israelsvoice, April 25, 2016.

"Born to hate--the Palestinian children are being taught to destroy Israel", christiansunitedforisrael-uk, October 30, 2015

 Sharmine Narwani, "Excuse me, but Israel has no right to exist", alakhbarenglish, May 17, 2012.

Daniel Greenfield, "Palestinian Arabs: Yes we want peace, but peace means no Jews", frontpagemag, November 23, 2014.

What? There are Arabs who believe that Israel has no right to exist? There are Arabs who don't want peace with Jewish Israel; they want peace with no Jews?

What percent of headlines in the world's mainstream media print headlines hostile to the 'Palestinian Cause'? Not a very high percentage.

So which headlines are correct? Is Israel evil--or not? Are the 'Palestinians' the bad guys--or not? 

Sometimes, a picture is worth 1,000 words. Perhaps that's what this discussion needs.

Look at these images below. They're cartoons. They appear often in 'Palestinian' mainstream press--sometimes weekly, sometimes daily. 

Nothing like these images ever appears in mainstream Israeli press--nothing. Perhaps these pictures will tell you something about why there's no peace between Arab and Jew:

Why won't Israel make peace? Perhaps this question has a simple answer: you can't make peace with people who demonize you as killers. 

You can't make peace with those who bless Adolf Hitler, the man who killed 6 million Jews in less than 6 years.

The truth for the Palestinian Authority is, peace and hate don't go together. No one  makes peace with hate--no one, not the US, the UK or, yes, even Israel.

Why won't Israel make peace? The answer is obvious. Israel will not make peace because it can't. It has no one to make peace with.
