When will the Palestinians and Israelis come together?

Kay, I'm losing hope. There are so many settlements now that drawing a defensible border is impossible and Sharon has restated his support of the settlements. Every time there's another suicide bombing, thousands of formerly moderate Israelis go over to Sharon's side. Every time there's another Israeli incursion the same happens to moderate Palestinians. I feel like the Israeli and Palestinian moderates I knew so well in the 1980s are disappearing, and so is any hope of a peaceful settlement. I've lost so many friends on both sides that my heart is aching.

Sorry to be so gloomy, but it really hurts me.

When will the Palestinians and Israelis come together? When hell freezes over.

I think I understand you. I made similar experierences although not losing...

Do you have my E-mail? I joined another group. I already have a Palestinian friend. There are also many Americans, Israelis, etc and whoever interested in peace and in news from over there is. Sometimes I'm incredibly hopeless...but I mustn't be.

Take good care

Kay

Maybe when P. and I. must fight together against something, they come together. As what the hell concerns, hell existed some hundred years ago in minds of the people.
