Negotiate in Gaza

The Israelis and Palestinians continue to kill each other. Americans tend to support one side or the other. Each side sees the other side as good or evil depending on their point of view. Neither side admits they are wrong. Each side demonizes the other. Self-righteousness abounds on both sides.

Most Israelis, Palestinians and Americans approve of violence as appropriate responses to grievances.

Those of us active in the non-violent peace movement call for negotiations between warring parties as necessary steps toward bringing an end to the hostilities in Gaza. Very few opinion pieces or letters to the editor call for negotiations in the search for peace. It seems easier to take sides than find ways to peace.
