I grew up hearing too often how black-and-white the failures to establish peace between Israel and its neighbours had been – blame entirely placed on the shoulders of every country but Israel. Refreshing to hear a different take.
“I asked an old friend here in Cairo…whether the Muslim Brotherhood might be bad for peace.  She thought for a moment and said: ‘Yes, possibly.  But from my point of view, in America the Republican Party is bad for peace as well.'”
Simple and to the point – it’s why democracy can work, only by hearing all sides
Why can’t both sides ditch the extremist rhetoric and talk about the underlying issues that are fuelling the debate?
