Re: Tel Aviv
People have said it before, but I'll say it again: War is not the answer. It will never be the answer. The results of war? Death, damage to land and structures, and refugees. The people suffer, children lose their childhood, and all for what? The whims and disagreement of politicians who believe that bullets can solve what words seemingly can't?

War is sad and most of the time, it cannot be justified. My heart goes out to those who are affected by these attacks.

Tel Aviv
The climate is sooo beautiful in Israel and Palenstine.  Trees have been planted and are growing.  I once read that Israel and Palenstine are major producers of food for Europe.  I hope and pray for peace, but I guess old wounds run deep.  As my friend who fought in World War II state, "War is just not worth it....War is painful...War destroys so much"

Everyday life
You have to wonder why the everyday rewards of existence don't seem to factor in with politicians and others who decide that force is the best way forward.

Re: Think of the children....
Thank you SilvieBarak, I could not agree more with you. We have developed a culture centered on competition. In competition, there must always be a winner and a loser. We must evolve to a culture of cooperation if we are to survive.  Eventually we must wake up to the fact that every other person on the planet is a family member. We are all on the same side and want the same things; a warm safe home to raise our children, good food and clean water, and an environment where we can gain meaning and feel good about ourselves. Everything else is just decoration.

Re: Thank you
This level of hate cannot be resolved. Politicians look for short term solutions for a history that spans thousands of years. Gaza is a prison. The inability to escape from the poverty of such an environment sponsors the evil that we're seeing today. But the response to such evil is not to "bomb Gaza back into the Middle Ages".

Think of the children....
The normal people on both sides just want this to stop. For the rockets to stop. For the fear to stop. For the people in power to stop using them as shields and statistics to justify more and more violence. Why can't we all just get along? Sit down, have a coffee, eat some pita and hummous and chill the hell out! 

Great post, Sarah. You speak for the majority.
