United States and Israel Disagree
Where I see the point of both sides, I also believe both sides are preventing the peace process from moving forward. If a statehood for Palestinians is reached, then a lasting peace is suppose to be part of the agreement. In other words, the fighting it can be argued, is directly related to the lack of a current Palestinian State with recognized international statehood. I believe with such a state, that Israel would live with peace and security, not fearing rocket attacks or bombs against Israeli civilians. Palestinians and Arab nations in turn, would acknowledged what is a powerful, highly advanced, and important nation on earth, the country of Israel. If the Palestinians or Arab countries continued their illicit activities that includes targeting civilians with rockets or attacks, than the international community has to come in and say, wait, the Palestinian state was suppose to bring peace, and the fact its not, means the international community is compelled to act, using the international courts to bring justice to the enemies of peace.
