Peace in the Middle East

Yay! Ok, so that's great that there are steps being taken to work towards peace, but I can't help but be skeptical... does anyone else feel the same way?

I'm skeptical but hopeful. I think most Israelis and Palestinians want peace. But there are armed minorities on both sides who wouldn't have a reason to get out of bed in the morning if they couldn't plan an assault.

Peace will only happen when the respective leaders join together and marginalize the purveyors of violence. Unlike his predecessor Arafat, Mahmoud Abbas is willing to work with Ariel Sharon for peace, and that's why this moment in history is so encouraging. I only hope he can avoid the assasination attempts that the desparate terrorists are undoubtedly planning.
