    Both sides should read what Jesus has to say. And with 'sides' I mean all Israeli's and all Palestinians. One may hope for peace as long as one wants, but if the hearts of individual men and women - even children - are full of pride, full of hatred, full of envy, full of 'my rights', full of self... no peace will materialize. The issue here is not Kant or the lack of him. The issue is the denial of each other's right to exist. And on the palestinian side, and in most of the Middle East, this is taught - brainwashed - from Kindergarten onward. Even as Hitler hated us Jews, so do they. And, yes, some of us - over many decades of evidence of their hatred - have not exactly become lovers of them either. Lieberman's message is certainly divisive, as he splits hopeful dreamers from sober realists. But one only needs to look at the facts to know that he is the realist. In the USA one can build a mosque near Ground Zero, and possibly even get a Federal grant for some of the cost. In the Islamic countries you get arrested for talking to someone about the wisdom of considering Jesus. In the West we subsidize Islam educational institutions under our honoring of freedom of thought, freedom of religion, freedom of expression, freedom of education. In the Middle East you either conform to sharia or be in big trouble. It is so obvious, one wonders why nobody sees it.
