    As a Palestinian I have high hopes for this round of peace talks. We can point fingers at each other and voice our skepticism but that will only preserve the status quo. Even though I was never a fan of Netenyahu....I was actually moved by one of his comments at the launch of the peace talks. He spoke of "Two brothers in conflict that were able to set aside there differences and come together to bury their father". These brothers were Isaac and Ismail burying their father Abraham in Hibron (Al-Khalil). If we focus on that moment in time and recognize the mutual rights of all descendants of Abraham to share the land, we can come to an agreement. This will be uneasy at first, but I'm sure in time we can learn to respect one another. Then maybe... just maybe we will realize the the blood that was shed came from the same bloodline. PEACE, SALAM, SHALOM....Insha'Allah.
