    Only when The Prince of Peace sets up His kingdom on earth, will there be peace in Israel or peace on earth.

    Peace will come when the overwhelming majority who want peace stand up to the fringe elements on both sides and say “Stop the Violence”. But as the Palestinians and to a lesser degree Israelis do not actively prevent senseless violence against the other the cycle will continue.
    If Hamas is firing rockets against the Israelis or poping off shots across the fense and the local Palestinian police refuse to even try to stop it, this does not engender trust and good will from the Israelis. Without trust there can be no lasting peace only a cease fire.
    Only when the local populations actively work with the authorities to stop the terrorists and call the police when they are setting up to strike will the cycle end.

    There will never be peace in the Israel. They have been fighting for thousands of years and they will continue.
