What Is Wrong and What Can (and Cannot) Be Put Right in the Middle East
Dr. Dan Schueftan
President Donald Trump's peace plan creates, for the very first time, an opportunity for Israel to shape reality in Judea and Samaria in a way that serves its national security interests. Until now, Israel has had three options, all of which were dangerous and harmful. However, with the rollout of the Trump administration's Vision for Peace, Israel now has a good hand with which it can pursue a fourth option that will address is chief security concerns. Follow Israel Hayom on Facebook and Twitter. One of the options that Israel pursued was the effort to have the Palestinians become independent so that they will not have to rely on Israel. However, the Palestinian leadership and its people do not want to step up to the plate and become their own masters; they want statehood just so they could establish a permanent base from which to fight Israel. Israel learned its lesson. Today you will not find a single political figure in Israel within the major parties who would want to give the Palestinians full statehood. Apart from the radicals, everyone knows that as soon as the Palestinians get hold of their airspace and border crossings they would use them to further their attacks against Israel, which would in turn have to reconquer Judea and Samaria and stay there permanently. The second option was continuing the occupation.

There is still a chance you can work out your differences, but it will require major concessions on both sides. You can be very committed to someone but only be able to fit them in the limited free time you have. You are atheist and that's not changing. Some exceptions and valid reasons do exist for divorce but self righteousness is not on of them. I hear you, I need my down time to decompress and watch stuff on the Internet, haha.
