    Most reasonable people would prefer a diplomatic resolution to this nuclear weaponry talk because the alternatives are horrendous either way. For example, just look at today's Haaretz Middle Eastern cuisine write-up by Ronit Vered of the "Beet Kubbeh soup". My mother continually made (until today) this dish as I was growing up as it's a Jewish delicacy of dumplings made with semolina and beets. It's a laborious task, so my generation won't be making it. Then I thought, there's probably a similiar Iranian dish. Well there is - Iranian beet, plum and celery soup with kubbeh. I've argued for years that there are more commonalities of our cultures and traditions which bind us, that is, Muslims and Jews, and require the utmost efforts to live in peace and recognize each others' legitimacy. The naysayers to this capability should be proven wrong and therefore the maximum must be done to divert this path of destruction to the region. Isn't better to make the dumplings than the bombs?
