but it’s a silly discussion to have because Israel exists, so it doesn’t really matter what Arabs think. Same argument can be made about Israelis or Jews....they don’t want a Palestinian state to exist.....the difference of course is that a Palestinian State doesn’t exist....so their “will” has proved more consequential.
That's completely incorrect, there was a two state solution from inception which the Jews happily accepted. Any proposal for a Palestinian state alongside the Jewish state gets shut down by Arabs, not by Jews.*
*Yes I am aware of the settlements issue and I'm not saying Israel is all warm and fuzzy but they certainly seem to be a lot more amenable to sharing the land than the Arabs.
