    Hasn't the last 100 years taught this governments around the world anything. With due respect to such atrocities as the holocaust of World II by the Nazi regime and the ethnic cleasing of the former Yugoslavia by the then in power Serbian regime, enough is enough. True democracy of the 21 century must begin with the respect of all ethnic groups no matter in or outside that the borders of the state in question. The world is much smaller and the cost of war is much higher in terms of human life. Might is no longer right in this age of modern weaponary. What is now right is for our leaders to become just in the solutions and explain them to their repective people. The time is now for us as human beings spring to our feet and demand an end to injustice. The people must demand an end to senseless killings on both sides and the country with the might must come to face reality. The Palestinians are asking for only 22% of the land and a the right to be treated as nothing less then human beings. I ask, is that too much to ask?
