How did Egypt and also Jordan come to peace with Israel. It was because a man, against the wishes of his own people, made a grand gesture of peace. Partisanship or nationalism, chauvinism, fiedism, etc. all really come down to the same thing - one form or another of the ad hominem argument. It is always based on dogmatic thinking. So, many Jews and evangelists I know can't understand why it would be wrong for Israel to build in the territories or controversial land (E. Jerusalem) and Palestinians can't imagine why their shooting rockets at Israel should be wrong either. This needs a solution and refusing to budge unless the other side admits you are right will never work. People bolstered by others would rather die and see everything . . .
