Not sure of the source of this b/c I got it in an email from a friend, but it helped me keep things in perspective…

Sheikh Abdallah Nimr Darwish, founder of the Israel’s Islamic movement told Israeli President Shimon Peres that the Arab world is ready to make peace once and for all if the "Israeli occupation" of Judea and Samaria comes to an end. "The Israeli flag will fly in the capitals of 57 Arab (and Muslim) states – something that the fathers of Zionism did not dare dream of," Darwish said on Tuesday at the close of Ramadan Iftar feast hosted by Peres. Darwish also said that the 57 Muslim countries have consented to the Saudi peace plan and that the Arab world wants to sovereignly acknowledge the State of Israel. Darwish also said he would agree to small land swaps between Israel and the Palestinians to give both states territory and that normalization was possible and referred to Israel’s political relationship with Egypt and Jordan. Darwish said, "If they have established diplomatic relations, there’s no reason for other Arab nations not to do likewise." He expressed hope of potential peace and insisted that the window of opportunity not be missed.
