60 years ago in the United States black people couldn't even eat in the same restaurant as white people. They couldn't live in white neighborhoods, go to white schools, drink from white drinking fountains, sit side by side on the same bus. 60 years later blacks and whites have learned to work and live together side by side in peace. Even electing a black President. Meanwhile in Israel a childish schoolyard feud between Jews and Palestinians has been going on for over 60 years, too. Only unlike the blacks and whites, Jews and Palestinians are no closer to living side by side in peace today than they were 60 years ago. During those 60 years Apartheid in South Africa i ended; Communists and Capitalists figured out a way to co-exists and cooperate; the IRA ended its bloody war in Ireland; America and Communist Vietnam buried their differences and now share diplomatic and trade relations. People across the globe have learned to put aside their differences and beliefs and have learned that there is more to be gained by working together than fighting against each other. Only the the Jews and the Palestinians, continue their 60 year old feud of self-righteous hatred and revenge. If Jews and Palestinians can't be creative enough to find a way to live in peace...like everyone else...maybe they should be left to bomb each other for another 60 years or until nothing is left in Israel and Gaza but of rubble and dead bodies.
