In 1948 the Arabs and their British advisers totally miscalculated. David Ben-Gurion and the Jewish Agency had agreed to the totally indefensible, illogical and dangerous United Nations Partition Plan. Look at the map:
The Plan was accepted by the leaders of the Jewish community in Palestine, through the Jewish Agency. The Plan was rejected by leaders of the Arab community, including the Palestinian Arab Higher Committee, who were supported in their rejection by the states of the Arab League.
Immediately after adoption of the Resolution by the General Assembly, the Civil War broke out. The partition plan was not implemented.
There was no way that the State of Israel would have survived with those borders.
Nothing has changed in all these years. The Arabs never wanted to have peace with a Jewish State. That's why they rejected the Partition Plan. And unfortunately, Israeli politicians haven't learned their lesson either. There is nothing we can do to "make peace" with the Arabs.
You can only have peace with those who truly and sincerely want peace, and the Arabs don't want peace with a Jewish State.
So we must stop begging and negotiating and offering them gestures and Land. We must invest our energies into our own growth. Those Arabs willing to live in peace will stay and the others will leave.
