Under normal circumstances one might hear logic in what Mr. Eldar has written. However, you can only make peace between two parties that truly desire an end to hostilities. Just like almost every war, it ends when one side has won and the other has absolutely lost; the same is true here. The collapse of Russia did not occur out of an act of kindness. America economically overpowered the USSR. And, even still we don't have a full peace. Western European strength is in the fact that the Allies took full control of the Axis Countries and installed a democratic style government. It should also be noted that it took several years of full time effort to accomplish that goal. Whether you call it Islamic fundamentalism or Muslim empowerment the facts are that there is still no true willingness on the part of the general Arab World to cool their aggression vies-a-vie Israel or for that matter all western cultures. In 2005 American Muslim got together to declare a Fatwa condemning terrorism.
