- Since 1948, every time the Palestinians were offered any possibility of a Palestinian state, side by side with Israel, they chose to reject it, and more violence followed.

- While Jews are not permitted to live in many Arab countries, Arabs are granted full citizenship and have the right to vote in Israel.
