Maybe the most discouraging thing about Gaza is how much hatred and callousness there is in places far away from the Middle East. If people a thousand miles away can have no understanding of the other side there’s little hope for where the missles fly.
What if we begin to see joint protests like this – Jewish and pro-Israeli people protesting Israeli settlements in the west bank and Arabic and pro-Palestinian people protesting Hamas and Hezbollah?
What if the Jewish diaspora demanded an end to the settlements and the Palestinian diaspora demanded recognition of Israel’s right to exist?
That would be a message of peace.
