But what the protesters are usually demanding isn't "peace," it's some dangerous irreverseable concession. To experiment with "peace concessions" isn't like trying a new clothing style or having your haircut a new way and then letting it grow back out.
Peace is a lot more complicated.
For there to be true peace, both sides must be ready and truly want it. So for Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to beg the Arab Abbas to "give peace a chance" is totally idiotic and dangerous for the security and continued existence of the State of Israel.
"Since he (Abbas) doesn't speak Hebrew, and my Arabic is not great, I am calling on him in a language we both know and saying to him, 'Give peace a chance,' Netanyahu said, switching to English to utter the phrase."Don't miss the opportunity," he added, saying he was prepared to make "difficult decisions to move negotiations ahead" but cautioning he would take no moves that would jeopardize Israel's security.
The Israeli Government must stop the quest for peace with people who aim to destroy us and just make Israel a stronger and more secure country. At some time in the future, G-d willing, the Arabs will stop educating their children to terrorize us and there will be peace. There is absolutely nothing we can give them, bribe them with to speed the process.
The only way to speed up peace is to stop begging/negotiating for it. There will only be peace when the Arabs want it. I want true peace, because the other one is fake and fatal. It's no better than a "dime store diamond."
