    As I understand Scripture, one may not attain peace directly. Peace is the by-product of love and truth in balance together. By peace I mean rest and security within and without both as individuals and as a society--or even as a world. By love I mean treating others as equals. By truth I mean being faithful to keep one's word. Summarizing the wisdom of Scripture as I understand it: Walking the the way of the Lord is being loving and true by doing what is just and right in God's sight, for only love and truth in balance together lead to peace, which is reconciliation with God. This means there will be no peace in Jerusalem, humanly speaking, until Israel's enemies love Jews and are willing to keep their word. Anyone who does not understand this is fooling themselves. Do what you know to do day by day, Israel, and leave the increase to the Lord. No other outcome, as hard as this may be, will be better.
