I was born and bred in Lebanon and like most people on both sides of the Lebanese/Israeli divide, I have suffered and lost friends in the conflict including a childhood sweetheart in an Israeli raid on Beirut in 1982. I have "good reasons" to hate Israel, but I don't. I can empathize with the fear of the Jewsih people after the holocaust. I can understand their need to have a safe haven. But equally, I believe that they went about it the wrong way. Israel's biggest mistakes were creating refugees and the use of excessive and unproportionate force in any action it took. If a nation seeks peace and security, it should seek having friends not nukes. If the Israelis had a proper understanding of the rules of Arab hospitality and capitalized on it, they would have found themselves in open arms instead of facing armies. This conflict makes my heart bleeds because I am at a point that enables me to the great similarities between the Arab and Jewish cultures. End this war now.
