I completely agree with you - negotiations will not be effective nor will peace be achieved if terrorism is still condoned. We’re on the same page - terrorism needs to be denounced in order to continue the ‘peace process’.
However, I think the point I made earlier is still relevant - if genuine academic discussion and debate cannot be achieved amongst Jewish young adults, it’s probably impossible for that to be replicated on a larger level.
Also, re: ‘war amongst ourselves’. Sadly, I disagree with you. I think the current situation and the divide between the left and the right, the religious and the non-religious is steadily growing and becoming more and more severe. Rather than focusing on what unites us as a people, we’re focusing on our differences and further dividing ourselves. As a small people that constitute a tiny fraction of the world’s population this is dangerous attitude. In order to ensure our survival, we must be a united front and act as brothers who truly care and love each other. As Menachem Begin famously said “מלחמת אחים לעולם לא!”

Article calls for Iranian strike on Israel.
Detailed plans to destroy Israel.
Netanyahu: We heard Iranian ruler call for our destruction.
Love you too! NOT.
“We have received a reminder about what kind of a neighborhood we live in. We heard the Iranian ruler’s remarks about the elimination of Israel. We saw the Syrian army massacre its own people. We have seen bloody events in our region. Various leaders have no moral compunctions about killing their neighbors and their own people alike.
In such a region, the only thing that ensures our existence, security and prosperity is our strength. We are obligated to continue to develop the military, economic and social strength of the State of Israel. This is also the only guarantee for the existence of peace and the only defense for Israel should the peace unravel.
Developing Israel’s strength is this Government’s main issue.”"
