Romney’s spot-on in assessment of Palestinians

Mitt Romney is correct that the Palestinians do not want peace with Israel. If they did, they would have had peace for years. But they refuse to accept Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state, they honor terrorists, and they bring up their children to believe that their greatest goal is to kill Jews and eliminate Israel.

It is this rejection of Israel that is the source of continuing conflict; it is impossible to make peace with people you believe should not exist. When the Palestinians accept Israel, there will be peace.
