    I fully agree with your article as we should not miss any chance which we can utilize to take any long standing disputes to a negotiating table. To learn lessons from the mistakes is the good lesson. For that there is another lesson: to find what the mistakes are. The policy makers who are sitting in the ivory tower can have only a bird?s view. The lawmakers have to ponder and be close to the common people. Fanaticism is being fostered by the vested interests from both sides. This is an important point to be noted by the common people.A collective forum in association with good hearted people from both Israeli and Palastinian sides should work out for creating an amicable atmosphere.They must enlighten both sides to live in the real world where hatred is replaced by co-existence, love, compromise, forgiveness etc. Gandhiji's non-violence is the best weapon to use in any freedom struggle. Now the time is over for the Israeli attrocities and Palestinian reprisals. The present scenario of the world is not in favour of any war mongers. As you put it: prayer means peace. This is a positive thought which we should cherish.
