It appears to me that in many of the non-secular middle eastern states (including Israel) policies and government are often driven by unreasonabe religious fanatics. Each accuses the other of being evil and wishing them death and the plague ( for example Rabbi Ovadia Yosef). Peace will be a mirage for all of them as long as religious leaders an fanatics are at the leaver of politics. Reason and religion seem to be an insurmountable contradiction in the middle east.
