Hoping that things change completely in the Middle East is wishful thinking. Politicians set aside land for an Israeli state. Many Palestinians lost everything in the process. However, the Israeli nation was formed and succeeded - it is a REALITY. Israelis do not want war, but 65 years go politicians drew borders and the Palestinians had no choice. This obviously stirred the pot of a deep seated hatred between the Arabs and Jews.
I, for one, think it is time to burry the hatchet and get on with the business of living in peace. However, I am an American Christian and my thoughts amount to a big ZERO. I have many friends who are Jewish and Arab. Arabs remain hostile to any idea of peace - it is deep-seated.
