The author reflects on the identity of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. He believes that the seeds of unilateralism, which is desired by the Israeli government, is nurtured in its general Zionist experience. He added that the identity of the conflict is rooted from Israel's difficulty in defining the nature of its relationship with its Arab citizens. Israel is intending to redraw the borders, which would involve the evacuation of dozens of settlements and settlers.
