I read a history of the founding of Israel, and event has stuck with me ever since.

As the British were leaving, a convoy of supplies was headed to the coast. They were ambushed by the Palestinians. As the British were fighting them, another battle broke out on the other side of the road where the Israeli’s had set up there own ambush. The result was each party engaged in a firefight with the other two parties. A microcosm of the battle that still rages to today.

After reading that, I realized there will never be a peaceful solution. As Ogre said, a lot of young men are going to die fighting the same war that has gone on for thousands of years.
