I am not so sure that geopolitical analyses are relevant. I think your opinion is wrong. I have friends and family who are Arab & non Arab Muslims and I also have Palistinian acquaintances. The problem from where I sit and observe is the mind set exhibited. Pure unreasoning hatred, all from inculcation rather than experience. Geopolitical and other issues can be be resolved by negotiation, given good will. This attitude cannot and caring and understanding of self and others is a prerequisite for goodwill to exist. Only self understanding and broader minds will recocile peoples. This our human failing, we all suffer from the problem of narrow & distorted perceptions.
