I know it looks like a 5 year old made this drawing. Perhaps it's because I see this issue with a 5 year old's eyes. To me it's very simple: people should not fight. After all, we are smart enough to convey complex thoughts and ideas with words, so why not use this uniquely human attribute to solve problem -- why not talk instead of resorting to weapons and terror?
I know it's not realistic, but as members of my family either have to seek shelter when the alarm sounds or are sent to fight in Gaza a war that they did not ask for, I hope that in 2009 Israelis and Palestinians would resolve to stop fighting and resolve their issues once and for all through the only possible way: talking.
