Why Can’t Palestinians Talk with Jews About Coexistence Without Fearing for Their Lives?

Some local Palestinian leaders met with Jewish residents of Judea and Samaria on Wednesday to discuss issues they have in common, as well as coexistence.

The meeting took place in the sukkah of Yossi Dagan, the head of the Samaria Regional Council.

“The best way towards coexistence is in the dialogue between leaders who know the needs of both populations,” Dagan said.

While a few of the Palestinians agreed to be photographed, most of the delegation refused to be identified — out of fear of being attacked by the Palestinian Authority.

Which brings up the question: if Palestinian leaders want peace so much, why do they threaten people who want to speak to Jews as normal human beings?

This is a question that J Street, Jewish Voice for Peace, and IfNotNow will never answer.
