Mr. Mohammed: Thank you for your eloquent and well worded email. You should be in charge of the Palestinian government, because your true goal is peace between two nations, for the good of both states. I truly believe Israel would love to have an honest man in charge of the government, who WILL KEEP THEIR PLEDGE. IT TAKES TWO SIDES TO MAKE PEACE! I CAN UNDERSTAND THE CYNICISM OF BOTH SIDES, BECAUSE OF THE LONG HISTORY OF FIGHTING AND FEUDING.

Once again you are correct, about these oil-rich countries who have millions of dollars coming into the governments, and their officials, but leave the people in a state of poverty. I can honestly say that alot of governments are not looking out for their people. We need more wise educated people like yourself.

I see that you are a CPA, and probably very successful. Education, and self-worth, and self-esteem, being successful, belief in ones religion, can change a man for the best. Unfortunately, violence goes along with terrorism, because alot of these Jihadists have nothing to live for, except dieing for Allah, and having 21 virgins at their beckoned call. This is what they have been taught from childhood, and this is all some of them know or understand. It is a terrible shame, that more people in the middle-east, do not have the opportunities to live a free life as a respectable citizen. Alot of the citizens are fighting to put food on the table for their families. Its called survival, and I sympathize with them.

Bravo for believing Israel has a right to exist. Why should anyone be singled out for their race. I really wish you could convince the radicals to stop the terrorism. It would be a safer, and more peaceful world, if everyone was a statesman like yourself.

I appreciate your time and thoughts on Israel, and Peace. Mrs. Anne
