Peace between Israel and Palastine would be a wonderful event. However, the risk that Obama is asking Israelis to take is their very lives. Palestinian factions and militants don't want just peace with Israel, nor just land, nor improved living conditions. What these radicals want is the complete destruction of Israel. How can you negotiate peace with such a group.

Arafat rejected peace overtures (1/2 of Jerusalem, a State of Palestine and other objectives) because his ultimate goal the overthrow of Israel.

But I give credit to the president for trying, something he hasn't done in 4 years. He should push both parties (Israel & Palestinians) to reach for peace.

How do you ever get it when there is such distrust created from years of abuse on both sides? Peace is not impossible to realize, but it seems impossible under current realities. a

David's paragraph made me really laugh. All the world is discussing right now ways to let "Palestinians" the original homeland owners have "haha peace" with "invaders" who were and still and will continue killing Palestinians. Hey you david, assume that a gang member broke in your house, killed your son (assuming you are married), raped your wife and daughter in front of you, and the whole world came asking you to have "peace" with this terrorist! Will you? If you have dignity you won't, As simple as is :)
Americans wouldn't accept that idea that much too, because they, themselves invaded north America, and everyone knows how they murdered the original citizens there.
By the way, I am not a palestini lover either, but stop protecting and thinking about Israel as a "real" country! If Americans love Israelis that much why don't they ask them to go live in USA? there are many vacant deserts they can throw them in ha ha ha.
