Peace in the Middle East

One of the things I pray for, almost every week, is peace in the middle east. I truly believe, now more than ever, that the elusive--some would say quixotic--hope of world peace is tied directly to Israel.

One could argue that our recognition and support of Israel, and the emnity of Israel by it's neighbors, is a direct or indirect cause of 9/11 and all the terroristic events since then. Yet, despite what some would prefer, neither Israel, nor it's Islamic neighbors (including the radical ones) are going away.

To me, the best, most long lasting means of peace for everybody is the final recognition and coexistence of Israel, the Palestinians, and all the Islamic neighbors, even as far away as Pakistan.

This article gives me reason for hope:
