Is there any hope?

by ray goodlass

On yesterday’s American PBS broadcast on SBS TV a special segment on Israel/Palestine highlighted how little the two parties know about each other. Their lack of knowledge and awareness is quite frightening. Some of this appears to be genuine ignorance, but some of it falls into the “don’t want to know” category

The broadcast also pointed out, accurately as far as I can tell, that though polls in Israel indicate a majority of people say they want a just peace negotiated that still vote for right wing and to be honest racist parties such as Natanyahu’s ‘Likud’ and ‘A Jewish Home’.

What hope is there in such circumstances?
