Why Recognition Matters

Why is it so important that the Palestinians recognize Israel as a Jewish state?

The answer is simple. The reason is because so long as it doesn’t, we can never achieve peace. Recognizing that the majority of the land of Israel belongs to Israel and the Jewish people means the Palestinians agree that it isn’t theirs and they will not try and capture after any peace agreements. The problem is that the Palestinians refuse to recognize this fact. Any land Israel gives away will not lead to peace. The Palestinians will always demand the rest of Israel to be included in their state and they will continue fighting for it, till they have it or until they are no longer alive to fight.

This is why recognition matters and this is one of the reasons we are so, so far from ever reaching a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians.
