Peace Process

  1. The peace process has been unsuccessful because the Palestinian leadership has refused to truly accept Israel's right to exist. The Palestinian Authority walked away from two generous Israeli peace offers. In its mosques, schools, and media, the PA continues to glorify terrorists and teach its people to hate Israelis.
  2. Supporting peace means taking a clear stand against terror. Hamas and other terrorist groups continue to fire rockets into Israeli homes and stage suicide bombings in the heart of Israeli cities. Today Hamas controls the Gaza Strip; if a Palestinian state were created tomorrow, forty percent of the Palestinian population would live under the control of the terrorist organization.
  3. The Arab World has not played a constructive role in promoting peace. Instead of helping to integrate Palestinians into their own societies, Arab governments have perpetuated their status as refugees for generations, using them as pawns in their conflict with Israel.
