This conflict is based on religion and politics. It will take a very long time and a lot of giving on both ends to obtain any peace. This will not happen in our lifetime. It would help if they didn’t teach their kids to hate. We can fix politics but we can’t fix fanatics.
No. I was in Israel last year and in my view there is just too much animosity in that land. The only way peace will be achieved is if one side gives everything up.
No. Peace will not be established in our lifetime. There is too much at stake and the solution is not black and white; Israel’s hands are dirty too. There is still this dispute on who is the real homeless group- the Palestinians claim they are, while the Jews believe, especially after World War II, they are. There is no middle ground. No text to refer to. No prophet is coming to tell us who is right and wrong.
I would like to say yes, but too many things are going wrong. There is no way to share such a small piece of land. They both claim the territory belongs to them. They need to first learn to live together to have any long-term peace.
