The hatred within

Israeli society is riddled with hate:

Maariv reported last week on a survey which found, not surprisingly after five gruesome years of Palestinian Arab belligerence, that topping the “most hated” list for nearly all Israelis were Palestinians. But 67 percent of leftists hated “settlers” even more than Palestinians.

“Besides settlers, the Orthodox, haredim, leftists and Arab Israelis also scored high on being despised.”

Many in the Palestinian community equally hate Jews and Israelis, not least because of the brutal occupation.

There will be no peace until this hatred is eradicated or largely reduced. The current path is unlikely to achieve either.
