    Most of those that claim to be for 'peace' whatever the conflict, in fact are just for the 'other side.'

    Did you mean your OP as a joke, Annie?

    I disagree.

    As far as the Palestinian and Israel conflict, for example, I'd like to see a Palestinian state and the state of Israel living in peace and cooperating to avoid further conflict.

    I find the loss of people's lives on both sides equally tragic and agonizing.

    I'm rooting for peace. Israel has a right to exist. Palestine has a right to exist. The Palestinians need to replace Hamas before there can be any significant peace making in the region. JMO.

    Right. But which side is 'wrong?'

    What makes you think it has to be one side is wrong and the other is right? They've both made mistakes. Both sides have legitimate claim to the ancestral land.

    The land is sacred to Muslims, Jews and Christians.

    Anyone for peace would find particular acts wrong, not particular sides, it seems to me.

    Possibly certain acts are being condemned and you are translating it into certain sides being condemned?

    I haven't followed the Gaza threads though, been too busy elsewhere.

    Fine, which side has the 'most' mistakes?

    Exactly. Both sides are not acting peacefully. They are committing acts of attack and retaliation.

    The aggressive actsare what need to be condemned, not the sides.

    I get the idea that you think there is some score card somewhere keeping track of which side is making the most mistakes. Is God keeping track?

    I get the feeling you have a side, and my guess is that you favor Israel. Is that correct?

    I do not favor Israel over Palestine or vice versa.
