No chance of peace in the Mid­dle East

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

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.
