    I do, and their cause is to be treated as equals to Israelis.

    Allow me to quote from a recent acquisition, Asimov's Chronology of the World.

    "David, who reigned over Israel from 1000 to 960 B.C., extended Israelite territory from Egypt in the South to the upper Euphrates River in the north. The entire eastern coast of the Mediterranean Sea was Israelite, and this has always been remembered by the Jews aas their 'natural boundaries.' This, in fact, is one of the miseries of history. Every nation remembers how things were at the time of its maximum extent and power, which is what it considers just and natural. Naturally, there are overlappings in every direction and the territorial quarrels never end."

    Note that this applies to both sides of the conflict. So it seems unless one group of people is utterly wiped out (Which both sides would like to see happen to the other) or assimilated, the conflict will probably never end.

    Unless you mean "one people" in some rhetorical sense, I cannot follow this assertion. You will have to connect the dots for me, I'm afraid.

I don't support victory for either side - what they need is a compromise.
    Agreed, I find it hard these days to have sympathy for either side, just the people who get caught in the crossfire caused by leaders who don't want compromise.

    Historically, this is not true only for Arabs.

    Turks, Jews and Iranians usually have a very different point of view about religion.
