Those peace loving Israeli governments need some love.

Your remark comes off as cynical, and so I suggest the following:

1 - When an Arab country offered to make peace with Israel (Egypt, Jordan), the offer was accepted immediately.

2 -
The day the Arab countries lay down their arms, peace with Israel would break out immediately.
The day Israel lays down their arms, their would be genocide.

Point 1: Historical
Point 2: From their own lips.

Peace has always been available, but there are those making a good living, power, and prestige, so long as they maintain the status quo. What would the leadership of Hamas or Hezbollah do if there was peace? This is not unique to the middle east - I recognize such in my own country, as well - those who's business is fomenting and/or maintaining unrest. It's a lucrative business.
