How much longer will the Palestinians have to wait?

 |  NCR Today

Okay, I know that finding peace in the Middle East eludes the best minds and most generous wills. Yes, it is all beyond complex. I get it. That said, I cannot imagine any scenerio in which we will find Middle East peace as long as Israeli settlements continue to be established.

Powerless Palestinians are being humiliated day after day as they watch fresh new settlements being established. Speaking of humiliation, think about the young laborer in the accompanying photo which runs with a CNS story on our website. Needing to support his family, he takes what work he can. The work he takes further assures his own humiliation and oppression.
