This guy is brave. You must watch the whole thing.
As I've always said, there is no "Israeli-Palestinian" conflict. There is a religious war between Islam and Judaism (one that the Jews do not want).
As Abdel-Samad puts it, there is a conflict because the Islamic world does not see Jews as humans, and that is the essence of the religious war. There is a theological reason this conflict can never be solved. That is the poison that he discusses.
The best we (Jews, the West) can hope for is containment and for more Muslims to arrive at the same conclusions as Mr. Abdel-Samad (although he is likely widely condemned for apostasy, if he has not declared himself as such on his own accord).
