    It's time for Israelis to get out of the war business too. Violence is no way to achieve peace. As Pope John Paul II said --it only delays it. Peace cannot come from the barrel of a gun or from a limitless arsenal of weapons but only when people respect and re- cognize each others rights. This has been Jimmy Carter's message all along too. When he was president he just didn't send Israelis arms like other US Presidents and politicians-- instead he looked for ways to bring them together with their neighbors. It wasn't military might that brought an end to the ruthless rulers in Yugoslavia ,Philippines, or the dictatorship in Chile or Apartheid in South Africa or the Berlin Wall but people wishing to negotiate their differences through agreements. Israelis should come to their senses & get out of the war business too. It's a waste of time, money and lives. Dutch
