Israel, Innovation, Imagination
Imagine what Israel could have done if there had been peace, and it might have unleashed all its resources to making itself and others better off, rather than defending itself against those who want to see it eliminated as a state, not to mention that some of these would like the elimination of Jewish people, too.
When the Zionists came and bought the land and developed it, and created the mechanisms of a democratic society, that is when Arabs came, too, to share in the relative prosperity and quality of life. So it remains today, which is why more Arabs in Jerusalem would rather live under Israel than a Palestinian state.
