    There are people on both sides of this conflict who simply do not want peace.  They refuse to empathize with the other side and will not accept peace as an option.  Whether this is motivated by Machiavellian strategy or simple bigotry and hate doesn't in the end matter.

    The only peace that such people will ever accept is a Carthaginian peace or the peace of a martyrs death, and that, in the end, may be what they get.
