The author reflects on the Arab-Israeli conflict, emphasizing the importance of recognizing each side's historical narratives to the process of peacemaking and reconciliation. It is suggested that the suffering of both Israeli Jews and Palestinian Arabs throughout the conflict's history must be empathetically acknowledged. According to the author, a successful resolution to the conflict would involve both political separation and the idea of sharing or partnership. Details on the 1948 displacement of Palestinian Arabs are also presented.
