They are both at fault.....to degrees.
I'm not saying it is the biggest problem, but one of the biggest problems that may not be able to be overcome is the FACT that most Palestinians truly do not believe Israel has a right to exist. (So asking them to 'say' they do is asking a lot...)
We can blame Hamas all we want, but Hamas is elected by the people...and every poll I know of shows something on the order of 80% of the Palestinian PEOPLE do not think Israel has a right to exist. Period.
From what I understand, the majority of Israeli's believe that Palestinians, if they simply acknowledged this right and denounced suicide bombings and martyrdom operations SHOULD have their own country, and have a right to it.
12,000 rockets fired over 10 years.....I mean what if they were their own country? What would happen to a country who fired 12,000 missiles at a neigboring country ?
Personally I think they are lucky they aren't a country yet. Right now they have sympathy as an occupied / subjugated people. If and when they get their own actual country where the buck stops with them....If and when that happens, if they fire missiles they will get the shit kicked out of them even harder IMO.
