Those watching the terrible situation in Gaza today are focusing on whether or not the parties can agree to a humanitarian cease-fire that would also trigger negotiations on more profound issues of disagreement, to try and resolve the underlying conflict between Israelis and Palestinians.The Palestinian-Israeli conflict has experienced recurring and increasingly vicious bouts of violence because the rights and interests of the Palestinians have consistently been neglected in favor of the rights of Israelis to their own secure state.Third, grappling seriously with a permanent Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiation that addresses ending the refugee status of Palestinians as fiercely as it addresses the Israeli demand for Arab recognition and security.Grasping and resolving these root issues is very hard to do for Zionists and Israelis, who refuse to acknowledge their major role in making refugees of the Palestinians. They have also ignored that no peace will come to anyone unless the root causes of the 1947-48 conflict are resolved equitably.
