"Any effort to bring peace between Israelis and Palestinians must reckon with the fact that bitter experience has taught many Israelis to doubt that their foes want a lasting concord." Walter Reich, a psychiatrist and the Yitzhak Rabin Memorial Professor of International Affairs, Ethics, and Human Behavior at George Washington University explains the Israeli malaise: "Increasingly, Israelis are convinced that no concessions they make to the Palestinians will ever be enough—that each concession will be followed by another demand, that each new demand that isn’t conceded will be a pretext for more violence."
