Let the Peace Dialogue Begin

May 01, 1987

In the article regarding trying to bring understanding to the Israeli/Arab problem, I believe there is little hope for summit. When one country believes it has the right to a particular piece of earth due to the promise of a "God," there is little hope for agreement. When another group of people says that they have lived on a parcel of ground for almost 2,000 years, they are not about to give up their claim. I'm afraid that the Balfour Declaration was a Pandora's Box and now its troubles are released. There are enough fanatics on both sides to never let there be a peaceful solution to a problem that has no solution.
