I have not seen any evidence that the PLO, Hamas, or Hizballah honors conciliatory moves. Israel continues to make concessions and the other side continues to ask for more.

This conflict is not about land, whether one state or two. It is a religious conflict. So what have we learned? Israel makes covenants. The adversary breaks them. The problem is Israel is making covenants with the wrong party.

Judges 2:1-5
1 Now the angel of the LORD came up from Gilgal to Bochim. And he said, “I brought you up out of Egypt and led you into the land which I have sworn to your fathers; and I said, ‘I will never break My covenant with you, 2 and as for you, you shall make no covenant with the inhabitants of this land; you shall tear down their altars.’ But you have not obeyed Me; what is this you have done? 3 “Therefore I also said, ‘I will not drive them out before you; but they will become as thorns in your sides and their gods will be a snare to you.’” 4 When the angel of the LORD spoke these words to all the sons of Israel, the people lifted up their voices and wept. 5 So they named that place Bochim; and there they sacrificed to the LORD.
