  • It is harder to make peace than war!
    When I was in Israel supervising the building of the hotel across from Jerusalem’s Jaffa gate in 1995. The Oslo agreement was implemented. There was euphoria in the air. Many companies and individuals were talking and ready to invest billions of dollars. I myself contacted some investors to invest in building an automobile manufacturing plant which would create jobs and have a locally manufactured automobile at a much more reasonable price. All that faded as soon as the suicide bombers started blowing up busses on Jaffa road in Jerusalem. Talking peace, signing peace agreements and living in peace and coexistence are two different things. There are external powers that do not want peace in Israel. That has been going on since the end of WWI. If you know, or anybody knows a way how to overcome it and bring peace and coexistence in Israel, I would love to promote it. It is unfortunate, that you have the Arab leadership for the past 3 generations promoting terror and violence and educating their children and the masses to commit terror and violence, while celebrating terror attacks and financing terrorists. You are banging your head against the wall. It has to start with a change in the mindset and the education of the children and the masses to live in peace.
    The Arabs have to prove that they truly want peace. Israel will need to see years of non-violence and peaceful coexistence, prior to resuming peace talks. Furthermore, the world at large must stay out of it, let the Israelis and Arabs work it out without external involvement. Then you night have a chance for coexistence.
