And what do you think of Obadiah Shoher's arguments against the peace process ( )?


Hi Alex,

Thnks for stopping by and commenting. I think Mr Shoher should use every means available and exercise his right to let his voice be heard. Thnks for leaving the URL.

As to what I think of his views? I think they speak for themselves. It is difficult to bridge the gap between his views and mine given the distance between our vastly different starting points and given our vastly different ideas of possible and desired futures.

The important value for me in reading his views, is they create a stronger conviction than ever that the future we live is the future we choose to strive for. When enough people on all sides, and that number is very slowly yet surely heading to a positive tipping point, believe our two peoples can find a way to live in peace then we will. It's that simple.

It will happen because we believe it can happen and because we then make it the future we fight for. As it has happened so often in the past. It was our own people who against all odds successfully rallied around one of the world's most fundamental thruths: "Where there's a will, there's a way." That is what history teaches us.

The very act of sharing the 'promised land' will be the key itself to creating a Promised Land. That is also what history teaches us. It is our very Torah, our very beloved Judaism that teaches us the values that we need to create a Promised Land with our neighbors.

So you see, I am glad you stopped by. Don't be a stranger.

Peace, shalom, salaam
