    and to actually blame the internal strife these nations are experiencing on U.S. foreign policy is absolutely incorrect. The conflict between Israel and the Palestinians is a separate issue which has galvanized some of the Muslim states over the years to support the Palestinians. But to state that a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians won't bring help with stability in the region as to adhering to international laws, democracy and human rights, is a fallacy - it is a necessary model to the region. Many have said so long ago. Others around the world have also a responsibility. For example, the Russians need to step up to the plate and deal with the Assad regime as a way out of escalation and prevention of more loss of human lives. Why are despotic regimes elsewhere allowed a non-violent exit and not enough attempts with this Syrian regime? Remember that the Russians played a major role in helping to end World War II with the German Nazis in the European northern front. It's a collaborate effort which is required in the Middle East.
