Can a Cease-Fire Last?
Pushed into the ghetto of Gaza,
Palestinians receive little
help from nearby rich Arab people,
Muslim or Christian. The Israeli
forces forcing apartheid fear for
their lives from Hamas that has sworn to
annihilate the Jewish State. Two
States seem unobtainable. For more
than two generations this small piece
of dry desert land has seen a war
between two religions that claim peace.
Will Salaam, Shalom, be any more?
