I Hope for the best

They are still fighting in the Mideast 
Jews killing Arabs and Arabs killing Jews 
Civil wars in Yemen and Syria 
lead  to the death of children
Will out poems change people's hearts? 
Let us pray they do 
A litle optimism 
is what is needed 
by all of us versifiers
We must do our best to help create 
paths to peace in the world
It is vital!

Someone once put it this way: If you too away all the weapons from the Israelis, you'd have a bloodbath on your hands. If you took all the weapons away from the Arabs, you'd have peace. I think that still pretty much holds. Or this: Where do you feel safer in Israel: In a neighborhood of Orthodox Jews, or in a neighborhood of Palestinians? Food for thought anyway. Thanks, Matthew. ~ Gershon

As long as the Arabs teach their kids all Jews are pigs...Alas, Matthew. Jews do not throw rocks, blow up restaurants, buses not break into Arabs homes, Jewish families are slaughtered on Shabbos. They are constantly attacked. The Palestianians aka Arabs have no intention to stop Jew killing. They read MEIN KAMPF. No, no peace, PR Shema Yisroel!
