It used to be that that conflict with Israel was called the "Arab-Israeli" conflict. Then, the politically correct press adopted the standard "Palestinian-Israeli" Conflict. But, both concepts are wrong, and both concepts prevent people from understanding the real reason behind the conflict. And, without understanding the nature of the conflict, there is no way to come up with a proper solution.
How can we explain that Iran is Israel's deadliest enemy, and Iran is NOT Arab? How to explain not only the "Arab unwillingness to accept the state of Israel as a legitimate permanent state in the region", but unwillingness of ALL Moslem-majority countries to accept Israel's right to exist? And the overwhelming majority of Moslem countries are NOT Arab!
Anyone who has studied the doctrines of Islam, or even paid attention to what Israel's enemies are saying, knows that the reason for the "unwillingness to accept the state of Israel" is that Islam's two sacred texts, the Koran and the Sunnah (the sayings attributed to Muhammad), require Moslems to make war on the Jews and to subjugate them or kill them. Just read the Hamas Charter. (Google it!) Hamas make it perfectly clear that they are fighting a religious war against the Jews.
The Moslem prophet Muhammad notoriously said: "You (i.e. Muslims) will fight with the Jews till some of them will hide behind stones. The stones will (betray them) saying, '0 'Abdullah (i.e. slave of Allah)! There is a Jew hiding behind me; so kill him.' "
This call to genocide is considered sacred by all religious Moslems and is part of the Hamas Charter.
The Moslem god, Allah, in the Koran (9:29) says:"Fight against such of those to whom the Scriptures were given [i.e. Christians and Jews] ... until they pay tribute out of hand and are utterly subdued."
This, too is considered sacred by all religious Moslems. Therefore, this is not a war over territory which can be resolved by drawing new lines on an old map. The reason for the conflict is that this is an Islamic religious war against the Jews. No more, and no less.
