Consider how we seek peace
The Saudi and Jordanian kings, the Egyptian and Palestinian presidents, and the Lebanese and Israeli prime ministers are hardly the two sides of the Arab-Israeli problem. On the contrary, all of these politicians are more or less on the same wavelength, if not on the same side as the U.S.
But how about Syria, Iran, Hizbullah of Lebanon, Hamas of Gaza, other Palestinian factions and representatives of Palestinian refugees? Though on the opposite side, they are, nonetheless, an integral part of the problem.
