I am starting to doubt that there will ever be peace in the Middle East. A thousand years ago great battles took place in the holy land and a thousand years from now people will be fighting for that strip of desert. Today, Israel continued with air strikes against targets in southern Lebenon. If Isreal escalates those attacks and declares war against Lebenon, Hezbollah, or whichever entity there Israel would at the same time be declaring war against every driver and commuter in the form of gas price hikes. Of course Israel has the right to defend itself from agression as does Lebenon or any soverign nation state. Israel and its neighbors are stuck in a cycle of violence going back and forth with with missles. Israel military is far superior than that of the militias it is fighting and so it should show restraint, in the words of Jesus Christ ‘turn the other cheek.’ Maybe that is the problem there, the people in the Middle East have not accepted our lord Jesus Christ as their personal savior… Ok seriously, John Lennon asked if we can give peace a chance. I want to know if there will ever be a chance for peace.
