Israel offers refused

Your correspondent (Letters, 6/5) wrongly blames Israel for the nonexistence of a Palestinian state. He ignores the rejection of repeated Israeli two-state peace offers in 2000, 2001 and 2008. Unfortunately, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has refused all Israeli offers to negotiate and compromise since he abandoned talks in 2014.

The Palestinians want the whole of Israel for their state. What they term “Palestine” stretches from the Mediterranean Sea to the Jordan River, with no Jewish state in between. So when will there be a state of Palestine? When the Palestinian yearning to create their own state is greater than their desire to reject the existence of the only Jewish state.
