what, in light of the Palestinian rejection of even the most benign efforts to humanize six million murdered Jews, should provide us with hope that a piece of paper signed by Palestinian leaders will actually result, after seven decades of hostility, in a diminution of Palestinians antipathy towards the Jewish other, and create a society which humanizes – and accepts the existence of – six million living Jews?What? Wishful thinking? A belief in rainbows and unicorns? A desire to be done, once and for all, with that pesky Israel problem? A lack of knowledge about the basics of Islam, a faith whose holy scripture, the Koran, is "extensively structured as a polemic against the Jews" (as David Nirenberg has characterized it) and which is taken as literal truth by the vast majority of Muslims, even the "moderate" ones?
I think that pretty much covers it.
