I believe in the power of social and political debate in order to solve conflicts in a peaceful way. People are the backbone of this world, hurting them touches the world as a whole.

It is the individual person who is alive--you. Create government to run for ALL the people to smooth the way. Educate children at an early age not just civics but what gov. is by using a dictionary.

Pursuing peace with all men as admonished by the Holy Bible is a creed that all men should live by. People from all over the world are one regardless of race, education and economic independence.

Seems obvious that Israel has given much and gained little. Has Hamas renounced its desire to destroy Israel? The international community needs to hold both sides accountable, not just Israel.

Peace depends not on what we are taught from the outside, but from what we know on the inside. Everyone is born with an innate sense to be at peace. We can return to that.

Violence and rhetoric is blindly directed to an opposing zone. Retaliation seems to reap more intense and cheaper cognitive rewards than investing effort in addressing the systemic sources of conflict.
