For once the American establishment tries to slow down the destructive forces rooming among Christians, Jews, Muslims, Americans, Europeans, Israelis, Arabs, Persians, Indians and all the rest of us. Still, those of you who do not like this peace effort will not have to worry, because your behavior and the behavior of people you do not respect will probably keep the kettle boiling for decades. Much energy will be invested in enhancing, maintaining and solving these senseless conflicts, instead of being invested in the production of wealth and good relations. So go ahead, praise the sword, injustice and corruption. You will be much poorer, and the rest of us slightly poorer, but what the heck: the national and religious egos will triumph.
