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


1- Syria offered peace in return of Israel giving back the golan heights. Its been more then 25 years now.
2- There are geo polical reasons behind peace with Egypt and Jordan. Even though those agreements brought peace to those countries, many argue that the regimes used western support to oppress their people. But that does not change the fact that Israel proved that they can strike a peace deal. I do believe that peace can be achieved. It is not an Israeli problem that most arab countries are ruled by dictators

The day Israel lays down their arms, their would be
genocide.


What do you think is happening today in Palestine? I do agree though that with the current hatred, both will use force and terrorism for political gains

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.


Hezbollah/Hamas would be out of business.
