    There will be peace on Earth when there is justice on Earth. My father, when he was alive, was also an advocate for Palestinian rights. He went to the United Nations in NYC in approximately 1954 to petition the UN for Palestinian rights, including Assyro-Chaldeans, who have been living as refugees in deplorable conditions in tents for approximately 70 years now. Palestinians were living in what is now Israel for thousands of years before the establishment of Israel as a state in 1948. I believe that Israelis & Palestinians can & must live together in peace. Enough of this selfish ethnocentrism. The time for humanitarian compassion is now! Thanks for listening, Marina Celeste Little, USA

    I am thoroughly opposed to the Israeli settlements in the West Bank. The conservative Netanyahu regime is not giving any breathing room for Palestinians to live in peace on their own lands. Netanyahu continues to promote settlements in the hope of making a two-state solution not viable. I think he would like to see the Palestinians rise up in violence so that he could bring about their destruction.
