While i agree that there is a certain degree of dehumanization,
A) It is not that wide spread in Israeli army, at least now. From my own army experience (not a war one gladly, but intifada was "experienced").
B) The same is on Palestinian side. Apes and pigs, sons and such.Does that mean that Palestinians also do not want peace?
Mutual hatred and distrust are a huge problem, i noted it several times. But it is m-u-t-u-a-l ! And even after peace will be signed, there would be
no ideal EU-like neighboring relationships.
I mean, i think that even you, who is not directly ("only" historically which is also very serious) hurt by all the issue would not start liking
Israel all of the sudden. What about all the people who are directly involved now and are deep in this conflict situation? By the way - it is natural.
Israelis and Palestinians reap what they (leaders and people) sow, each according to their capabilities to make things tougher on one another.
So peace signing is natural development, independent Palestine is natural development, actual peace is not natural in foreseeable future.
