Well, to suggest that "Palestinians acknowledge Israel's right to exist" is fairly well wrong.

Polls indicate that 75-85% of Palestinians do not agree with Israel's right to exist.

Furthermore, the Palestinian people (and I do acknowledge there are other reasons for this) seem to vote Hamas into power when given the chance.

A people who vote this sort of group into power are not seeking peace...Hamas makes the right wingers in the Likud look like peace loving hippies.
