The greatest obstacle to Mideast peace

September 9, 2009

Perhaps the most difficult obstacle to peace between the Arabs and Israelis comes not from Hezbollah or Hamas or even Iran’s nuclear aspirations. Perhaps the greatest obstacle to peace is the fact that Arabs continue to be taught hatred of the Jews. Arabs continue to be taught that the Temple was not in Jerusalem and the Jews have no rights to the land. Arabs continue to be taught that hopefully, someday, they will destroy Israel. This article from this month’s issue of Foreign Policy Magazine shows how deeply ingrained these feelings are, even in Egypt – a country that has a peace treaty with Israel, and even amongst the elite – those who are supposed to know better.
