Finally this exchange will happen. I just feel sorry for the many people who had to die in order to achieve what could've been achieved without this war. It is time for people in the region to understand that many of their problems could be achieved peacefully, especially if they implement the UN resolutions in related to the conflict. It took Israel over 25 years to withdraw from Lebanon, and over 30 years to realize that it had to withdraw from Gaza. I wonder how many more years it will take before it withdraws from the Golan and get peace with Syria, then the West Bank and peace with the Palestinians. Isn't time for Israel to become a normal nation who lives according to International law. The Arabs finally made a peace proposal in 2002 based on implementing the UN resolutions for the conflict, but we have to wonder when Israel will come to the conclusion that there is no escape from implementing those resolutions in order to achieve peace.
