My Dear Nemesis (You Gotta Read Genesis)

"I just read your post regarding why there is no peace. I understand that in this world we have to empathize with another person. However what i don't get is how not hearing another's reasoning impedes on a peace process. In my opinion someone strapping an explosive vest on themselves and blowing up a bud full of men, women and children is what impedes a peace process. We are not at "war" amongst ourselves as jews or israelis. It's the violence towards Israel that impedes and prevents peace..." by elsarge28

I completely agree with you - negotiations will not be effective nor will peace be achieved if terrorism is still condoned. We’re on the same page - terrorism needs to be denounced in order to continue the ‘peace process’.

However, I think the point I made earlier is still relevant - if genuine academic discussion and debate cannot be achieved amongst Jewish young adults, it’s probably impossible for that to be replicated on a larger level. 

Also, re: ‘war amongst ourselves’. Sadly, I disagree with you. I think the current situation and the divide between the left and the right, the religious and the non-religious is steadily growing and becoming more and more severe. Rather than focusing on what unites us as a people, we’re focusing on our differences and further dividing ourselves. As a small people that constitute a tiny fraction of the world’s population this is dangerous attitude. In order to ensure our survival, we must be a united front and act as brothers who truly care and love each other. As Menachem Begin famously said “מלחמת אחים לעולם לא!”

It Takes Two - Peace In The Middle East

"I would like to say a few words about what was signed in Doha. Hamas is a terrorist organization that strives to destroy Israel, and which is supported by Iran. I have said many times in the past that the Palestinian Authority must choose between an alliance with Hamas and peace with Israel. Hamas and peace do not go together. Over the past few weeks, Israel and elements in the international community have made great efforts to advance the peace process. If Abu Mazen implements what has been signed in Doha, he will have chosen to abandon the way of peace and to join with Hamas, without Hamas having accepted the minimal conditions of the international community: Not only does Hamas not recognize Israel and the [previously signed] agreements, it has not abandoned terrorism. It is continuing with terrorism and to arm itself in order to perpetrate even deadlier terrorism. I say to Abu Mazen: You cannot hold the stick by both ends. It is either peace with Hamas or peace with Israel; you cannot have it both ways."

If you had one chance to ask G-d a question, what would you ask?

 My question would be “When are the nations of the world going to live in peace and harmony?”
