Nigel - I enjoy your blog. I have always wondered about this conflict and how amazing it is that both sides are so concerned about the conflict but have so little sympathy for each others' position as you describe. Perhaps this comes in part from the asymmetry of the power relationship. They are at opposite ends of the scale in terms of power and this may have affected their responses to the situation. Israel believes its power will keep it safe and Palestine has given up thinking they have any power to achieve a solution. Maybe this has contributed to the trauma that each community experiences.
