I don't know about you Peter, but frankly I'm close to despair on Israel/Palestine. The glimmer of hope that Obama brought with him has been extinguished and there seems much more chance of war now than peace. The problem is far too complex for Jews and Arabs to solve on their own, but Israel will never let any outside power dictate the terms of peace because that will mean it has to make concessions it doesn't want to. So I guess the war will go on and on until maybe one day Israel gets unlucky. Bit like what happened to the Crusader states in the area in the Middle Ages. I'd stay in Australia if I was you.
