The "right to exist" issue for Israel is a sticking point in the Arab-Israeli conflict. Some Arabs want to destroy Israel completely; that is, they don't want a Jewish State in Palestine or anywhere else. Others want to negotiate the size and position of Israel, and are using the issue as a bargaining chip, sometimes arguing that recognition of Israel's right to exist would put them at a disadvantage in negotiations. Israel has alternately framed the issue as a precondition for negotiation or brushed it aside in return for Arab concessions.

"It is not Israel's settlement blocks but rather the Palestinian ideological blockade that constitutes the biggest barrier to peaceful arrangements . The Jew-hatred in this region must no longer be played down as a kind of local custom ..."
