Pray for peace in the Middle East

To the Editor:

I'm getting really tired of hearing about who did what to whom and when in discussions of the Arab/Israeli conflict.

As most people know, the conflict in the Middle East has been going on for centuries, almost since the beginning of time. Throughout history, both Israelis and Palestinians have done injustice to one another and many lives have been lost as a consequence of the violence between these two nationalities.

However, I feel we must not look at who is at fault in this crisis. We must focus on ways to fix this conflict. Innocent people are losing their lives at an alarming rate in the Middle East and the world as a whole should step in and try to stop the violence.

When the media takes sides, it creates tension not only in Israel, but also here in Canada and on this university campus. Let us stop taking sides with the Palestinians or Israelis and work as one human race to stop the violence that has shattered the peace accord.

Only then can this conflict really be resolved. I pray for peace in the Middle East and I think everyone else should too.
