There's much arrogance in a person sitting at his home in California, scolding peoples at a difficult war like a parent would belligerent children. The Arabs are fighting for what they see as their stolen land and trampled honor; the Jews are fighting for what they consider their only land and sole alternative to the disgrace and terror of the national impotence they had endured for almost two millennia. The truth is, neither party considers peace a top priority; nor do you. There are more important things than that. If you truly had to fight for your home and children you'd pick up a gun, not just role over or run for the sake of Obama's peace of mind.
Sometimes true conflict of interests exists, when its either you or the other guy, but not both, because some sort of essential resource is scarce or due to yours and the other's clashing intentions. This can even occur when both parties are motivated by perfectly legitimate reasons, meaning that most decent people would have acted the same in either pair of shoes, and yet the circumstances necessitate a struggle for either party to get its way. It doesn't have to be the good guys vs. the bad, or right vs. wrong; sometimes we are all "good" with regards to what's true and essential to our families and peoples, and BECAUSE of that we go to war. It's a shame but it's true.
There probably won't be any solution to war in the Middle East, only a victory of one side or the other, not unlike WWII being a total clash of interests. This brilliant peace plan of bored, naive westerners that sounds like the track "Why Can't We Be Friends" set on repeat, is getting kind of old. Grow up.
