Truce or consequences

All sides agreed to a truce in the Israeli-Lebanese fiasco last week. But now the hostilities still seem to be simmering on both sides. [Read story.]

And, as usual, each side is pointing fingers at the other.

This seems to underscore the fact that the problems in the Middle East will never end until all sides undergo a major attitude adjustment, and start seeing each other not as faceless enemies in a ages-old cultural and religious war, but as people, as human beings, as fathers, mothers, aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters, and children.
