      •  There are so many (0+ / 0-)

        who wish for a resolution. Some great leaders must arise on both sides to hash this out, and the United States must stop playing such a cynical role. The usefulness of an atomic Israel ally as a footprint of the US empire must be understood. It is in "our" interests to have an ally at odds with its Arab neighbors, if it feeds the beseiged "clash of civilizations" mentality that gives the US the right to do whatever it wants, wherever it wants. There are certain elements in both governments that feed off each other.  But I don't think this means that aren't many people In Israel who will bargain for peace, just as there are Palestinians who will bargain for peace. My deepest sympathies are with the Palestinians as the oppressed, but somehow they must be greater--they must produce a Gandhi or an Martin Luther King, Jr, or Nelson Mandela to win the most back for themselves.   In the real world it doesn't matter if your cause is just--somehow, you must shame the powerful before the world into accepting your narrative as having merit. I am making a hash of this. But basically, keep writing. There are many people of all faiths around the world sickened by the status quo.
