If you had the power to do so, how would you bring peace to the Middle East?

In this case it looks like in this case, it will have to be an enemy from outerspace to get these guys to work together.

Not necessarily....but who knows. The possibilities are endless.

Another method would be to encourage trade between both sides but at the moment, it's hard to see Israeli's wanting to engage the Arab Market or Arabs buying Israeli goods and services - especially in light of the recent bombardment of Lebanon

I guess the way is to create a situation where Arabs and Jews realise that they have more to gain by working together than against each other. It's going to be harsh because the depths of hatred are great but I think its a brave step that will make the world a better place. - Israel gains nothing by keeping Palestinians under the thumb and Palestinians gain nothing by trying to use violence.-Somehow both sides have to find a way to break out a vicious cycle.

You have wisdom, Tigertang, now if the Palestinians and Jews would only listen.........

Family Squabbles have probably caused more deaths than anything else. World WAr I was basically between the interrelated Royal Families of Europe. This is between the Children of Abraham. Unfortunately one of the ways to get them to work together is to find them a common enemy hell-bent on destroying both of them.

A common enemy certain;y would unite brothers. It is unfortunate that the shared kin ship between the two countries has never given them a common goal.

by giving just a small piece of mind..that people we all have to die one day ,why u want to die early on foolish topics or want to take others life for the same .. i would say its the wastage of ur life ..once u die hardly people remembers u and even if they they enjoy the rememberance by taking off on that day for such reasons

Well it might be because I've not got all that much to do and bashing away on the keyboard to express frustrations could be a way of doing something that might imply that my life may move in a direction

Peole need to realize that the world is a very small place and all most people want to do is raise their families and live well. There are enough resources to go around and if the rich nations would help take care of thepoor ones, there wouldn't be time for all the fighting and killing. Let us ALL live in peace and stop the nonsense that leads to brutality and carnage. Just QUIT!
