    Many international players expressed their readiness to mediate the "peace process" in the middle east. As a result, the number of these mediators has increased to bypass the number of peace seekers. This would only makes us think that what is needed is not more peace mediators (which is of course something noble) but we need people who want peace instead. For me "peace mediators" shall be replaced by "occupation stoppers". As because there is occupation in the ME, there is, therefore, no peace. Whatever the ME countries and people do, Israel as an occupying power, is the one responsible about war and peace. No once can deny the fact that Israel is occupying the Palestinians in every possible way and in many different forms. Political, scientific, educational, resource, social occupation, etc.. Once the world decides to stop the occupation and stand against the "idea of controlling others by force" in the name of security or whatever, peace may prevail. The world should unite to stop every occupation in the world and that would be the absolute form of peace mediation.
