    How can we help create it? Your ideas....

    Mine are get out of Iraq and help broker a Palestinian state.


    I recommend reading the book by Madeleine Albright, THE MIGHTY AND THE ALMIGHTY

    Here is a link to a site that promotes peace in the Middle East:

    The war in Iraq hasn't exactly helped Israel and the Palestinians resolve their differences, has it?

    Not exactly true BatBoy.

    All through the 70's and 80"s we were supplying our friend Saddam with money and weapons as he stirred up trouble with Iran and other nations.

    Neither did US support of Iraq in the past.
    What's your point?

    Peace there isn't linked to iraq or anywhere else, it's simply a series of excuses that are used to justify violence.

    The simple fact is the arab side will not accept a Jewish state and that is that.

    So very true, Xenophon... This is what I've been repeating for years...

    The Palestinian national identity was created by the loss of Western Palestine.

    The struggle for the land lost to Israel is what differentiates a Palestinian arab from an Iraqi, Syrian, Saudi etc... A Palestinian arab who forfeits their right to live in Western Palestine is not a Palestinian arab anymore. From that moment on he could very well go live in Cairo or Baghdad because he would have renounced to the land whose loss gave birth to his specific national identity.

    But I could just as well be lecturing my dog on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict...

    People simply don't join Message Boards to learn anything... just to regurgitate the propaganda and slogans they already believe in.

    Every now and then they pay attention to something the experts on a given subject say for about 30 seconds or so and that's all...

    After that their brain mechanism automatically deletes the expert's contribution to the thread and the regurgitation of propaganda and stereotypes is resumed with full force.
