How to Establish Peace in the Holy Land

How to Establish Peace in the Holy Land comprises a paper that Maulana Wahiduddin Khan presented at a peace conference organized by the Peres Center for Peace, Tel Aviv, on October 28, 2008. The theme of the conference was ‘New World, New Peace’. Offering a solution to establishing peace in the Holy Land (Palestine) the Maulana affirms: ‘The Arabs and the Jews both must know that they cannot go on fighting forever. In life, peace is the rule and war is the exception. War is costlier than any other course of action, so both parties must try to find some practical formula for the establishment of peace. Let me just say that the Arabs must accept Israel as a legitimate state by totally abandoning violence against Israel, and Israel must agree to make such territorial adjustment as is acceptable
