Blessed is the true judge. It is sad indeed to see a good man to go. However, the purpose of Israel is not peace. The purpose of Israel is GOD and his Torah. There can be no peace without it, just there can be no land or the Jewish people.

Once Israel is a truly Jewish country, there will be peace - first within Israel's "tribes", and only then with the Arabs.
