    Based on the present conditions of the peace talks, with so much negativity, I believe that had Dr. King lived to celebrate his 85th birthday, he would have been the perfect negotiator to bring peace to the Middle East. He would be addressing audiences in Jerusalem, in Gaza, in Ramallah, he would be talking about the possibilities for rising and occupying the Dream. He would be reminding the Zionists of their deep spiritual roots, and their responsibility for drilling and sharing the spiritual Light, in sharp contrast the way others drill and hoard oil. To the Palestinians he would have asked for a bit of patience, that the Children of Israel were not actually their enemies, but future spiritual neighbors. Just as in Berlin where geo-political killing zone barriers once existed, geo-spiritual community gardens would spring up. One day the children of Jews and Palestinians would weed out hate and sow out peace together. They would take solidarity in their deeply rooted spiritual illumination and not in their skin deep hateful inclinations.
