Happy Birthday Ruthi! The reason peace has turned sour is bc Israel started striving for peace from the wrong end. Namely in my opinion Israel should have proceeded from peace with Egypt to reaching out to other Arab nations in the region FIRST in order to establish safe peace with them and receive their recognition that Israel is there to stay. Instead Israel-U.S.-coalition started pushing for a state for the Pals, which could have been left for the last task after peace with Arab nations *d have been reached. Now they all use the Pal-cause as their excuse for terrorism against Israel and support such org.s as Hamas and Hezbollah, which hardly *d have gained ground in Syria, Leb, or be born in Iran, had Israel established peace with her neighbors first. ALSO: to me, my Jewish religious identity is one with Zionism; not one without the other, but together in perfect harmony. Zionism is the salt of Erez Israel, in my opinion.
