    The Israeli peace movement, aka the left, is strewn to the winds, castrated and hurting. But, as anyone knows who takes the trouble to google a little, there are tens of Israeli NGos and other Israeli organizations devoted to peace. Look for Palestinian NGOs for peace, you will find them without difficultly as well. What peace groups are missing in this land of curdled milk and soured honey is an umbrella organization in order to increase coordination and therefore add the political muscle so sadly missing. In addition his great ethical teachings, Ghandhi was a master organizer. Lacking Ghandhi, the different heads of the organizations for peace should meet, amalgamate their programs and choose a board of governors. The locality and internal decoration are of no consequence; let them enter and work together until a hopeful white smoke rises into the strife torn Israeli/Palestinian sky.
