    Greetings to both Khalid and PZ and all people that post here: Please, be assured I'm not trying to be a wiseguy here . I have a few questions: PZ:Have you ever met Palestinians/Muslims that you liked as human beings? And you would accept as friends of yours? Khalid: Have you met Israeli/Jews that you liked as human beings?And you would accept as friends of yours? And to both and ALL here: Wouldn't be better for everyone if BOTH sides (as well as the rest of the world , of course) would take the Ghandi approach of non- violence? As a Christian I have no problem whatsoever if a Mosque or Synagogue is next to a church. Nor do I have a problem with having friends of different religions , or ethnic backgrounds. Unfortunately, not all Christians feel the same way as I do.But that's because they're not following the religion as it truly is supposed to be followed. Also, I'd like to say, I'm not the type of Christian that believe people should be "converted" to my religion. I think every religion is perfect for each person that holds it dear. (This was taught to me by the Dali Lama , a Budhist, a long time ago I saw him on t.v)) But the point I'm trying to make is: That in EVERY religion and in every race, ethnic background ;there are good , righteous , compassionate people .And we should, in my very humble opinion,bring them out and their good deeds and moral values in our conversations . Instead of always pointing out the "bad" in the "other", why dont WE ALL, begin pointing out the "good" of the other. You guys here think we can try that , at least once in awhile? After all, practice makes perfect. If BOTH of you and the rest here can honestly say from the depths of your soul, that each of you know at least of one Palestiinian Muslim or one Israeli Jew, a Christian that is a good human being....then there's HOPE for peace and justice not only for both people , but for the whole world. I try, everyday to live by: "DO UNTO OTHERS as YOU WOULD HAVE THEM DO UNTO YOU" Simply said is : Treat others as you would like to be treated. And my last words, for this post, are: I pray in my heart that the violence from both sides stop. And both sides , can live together in peace, friendship and compassion and in forgiveness. And that then, the rest of the globe will follow in your footsteps. Sincerely in Christ, Vicky
