    I was linked to this page by my Zionist friend who lives in Montreal, and to be honest; as an Iraqi, an Arab, and a Muslim ... I cannot deny that we were fed with hatred against Israel eversince our childhood years, by the scholar curriculum, and the mass media, on the other side, I remember stories my parents whispered of how they lived in peace with their Jew neighbours in Iraq, something we never lived to witness! In my opinion, regardless of the authenticity of Israel, it is here today, and apparently, it is doing well, being the only progressive democracy amongst corruptive and repressed neighbouring nations ... I truly believe it is time for us to spread hands for peace, and try to make the most of the status ... as a Muslim, I believe peace remains the objective of all religions, not talking here about misled interpretations or subjective manipulations that all religions had gone through along history, apparently Islam is the current victim, I still have hopes for peace inshalah
