Why There Will Never Be Peace in the Middle East

There will never be peace in the Middle East until this difference disappears into the historical ether: 

"Israel is a society which is based on the rule of law. As the family of Naftali Frenkel said, “If, in fact, an Arab youth was killed for nationalistic reasons, then we’re talking about an awful and shocking deed. There is no difference between blood and blood. Murder is murder, whatever the nationality and age, there is no justification, nor forgiving and no atonement for murder.”

"Contrast this to the words of Abu Eisha, mother of one of the Hamas members accused of the kidnapping of the three Israeli teenagers: “If he did the kidnapping, I‘ll be proud of him. I raised my children on the Islamic religion, and they are religious guys, honest and clean handed and their goal is to bring the victory of Islam.”
