No chance of peace in the Middle East
THE violence in Egypt continues to claim the lives of innocent people. In Syria, hundreds more are killed as the once proud city of Homs lies in ruins, deserted and broken.
Meanwhile, over in New York, Palestinian and Israeli leaders share a pot of coffee in the White House and we’re all supposed to break open the champagne.
Should this summit lead to an established truce between Palestine and Israel, which is highly unlikely, someone should point out to the western world that the Middle East is mired in bloodshed in several other places as well.
The fact is that peace in the Middle East is never going to be achieved. The best e can hope for is to manage the violence as efficiently as possible.
