When they hurt enough or when they love enough

Aug 2013.   A promise of negotiations between the Israelis and Palestinians is raising hopes once again, against a backdrop of decades of failure and violence.   Although peace may be elusive on one hand, on the other hand, peace is only a matter of readiness and willingness. This can be solved anytime they want.   It may simply a matter of  when they hurt enough or when they love enough.   The rest us hold all this in suspension (the hard thing, because it is so easy to be cynical and disbelieving)  and take it one day at a time, and help if we can.  Imposing a coerced agreement is not peace.  We encourage dialogue, nonviolence and human rights.  The rest is out of our hands.  Good luck to us all.
