I always say if we want peace in the Middle East to stand a chance we have to tell our politicians to back off, or better yet, Muslims and Jews would need to get together and tell the rest of the world to back off and let them make peace amongst themselves all on their own. Sure they can do it!

Sadly in our lifetime, it's almost as if they are purposely being manipulated to be at odds with each other, living in constant turmoil and kept apart only to serve other people's political and economic agendas.
