in response to reader comment: Jewish-Moslem Understanding enhances Arab-Hebrew Coexistence

I mean, if Lahore-born Manmohan Singh and Delhi-born Pervez Musharaf could shake hands at one point; why can't we see an Iraqi-born Israeli leader doing the same with a Falastin-born leader of Iraq, Egypt, or Saudi Arabia?
