    The Isreali, Palestinian and US leaders could read and take to heart some of the posts in this thread. I too have reasearched what i was told was an ancient and complex situation with no easy solutions and come to the conclusion that... it is an ancient and complex situation with no easy solutions. Pawns in a geopolitical game played by Us among others.

    With the end of (the murderer) Arafat's end nearing and hopefully (the butcher) Sharon losing power when his Washington master's reign of horror ends maybe there is light at the end of the tunnel. And thanks President Carter for sewing the only seeds of peace the Palestinians and Isrealis have ever seen.

      He also worked very hard on resolving the conflict and was closest to getting the two sides to cut a deal at Camp David.

      My opinion?  Time to get rid of Arafat AND Sharon and let the new generation have a shot.  These old bitter rivals will never come to a peaceful solution.

      Truth be told, I have little faith that the people of both sides will ever forgive, start a new clean slate, and agree to live peaceably.  

      Like Stewart said on CSPAN:  "What in the heck was God thinking to put all the world's holiest sites in one place?!"

      I concur.

        I think that's totally the wrong metaphor to use to make a hopeful statement for the future resolution of the Arab-Israeli conflict.
