    I read with great interest the article by Akiva Eldar. After much reflection a few points need to be raised: 1)Talk is cheap. 2)Actions speak louder than words. 2)Even the rabbis state in the Talmud that at some point prayer (talking to God) must lead to deed. 4)We have talked for over fifty years for peace with out neighbors and their response has been war after war with little to gain. 5)A brief reading of the Koran indicates that a Muslim may lie to achieve the will of Allah to a non-Muslim. Lastly, and I am very sad to write this... I expect that my own seven year old son will grow up in Israel with the same problems and issues. After all, it takes two to make peace and the other side will never accept this...any suggestions for a realistic settlement would be great to hear about...
