The guy who wrote this is my history professor. He's famous for being one of the first "new historians", ultra-leftist Israeli intellectuals who rewrote Israeli history from the Palestinian point of view. He's a very knowledgeable guy, though, and he's had a major swing to the Right in the last few years. (He's a bit notorious for this in Israeli intellectual circles, I personally admire his intellectual honesty.) I agree with this article pretty much 100%. The Palestinians want an Arab state in all of Israel, period. This conflict will continue, with violence or without, as long as they insist that they have a right to a state and we don't. Until there is this change in the Palestinian political culture, all the road maps in the world wont change things.
