Cranky about the ME or Not?

If we were to believe the cranks and pessimists then peace in the Middle East is unlikely but I have believed, for some time, that there was a political imperative in Israel for peace. The latest report on poverty in Israel confirms my feeling that, in the long-term, Israelis have everything to gain and little to lose from the demilitarisation of the conflict.

But we shall see, as much depends onif the Arab states stop the fermenting violence, and how the Palestinian leadership reconciles the years of misleadership and corruption.

    On the other hand, the latest story about that football match and its consequences refilled my pessimism tanks again.
