Listening to Mahmoud Abbas and Benjamin Netanyahu at the United Nations today, I am overwhelmed by more than a glimmer of hope because I believe that if we can agree on the goals, we can achieve them together.

Both extend their hands in peace:
Abbas to the Israeli people - "We extend our hands to the Israeli government and the Israeli people for peace-making."
Netanyahu to the Palestinian people - "I extend my hand to the Palestinian people, with whom we seek a just and lasting peace . . .I extend my hand -- the hand of Israel -- in peace."

Both understand that all of our children are depending on us:
Abbas to the Israeli people - "Let us urgently build together a future for our children where they can enjoy freedom, security and prosperity."
Netanyahu to the Palestinian people - "Must this conflict continue for generations, or will we enable our children and our grandchildren to speak in years ahead of how we found a way to end it? That’s what we should aim for, and that’s what I believe we can achieve."

May the united forces of good empower our leaders to achieve these common goals.

Had these commitments been turned into reality, it would have been a very new beginning for the peace community at large. We, peacelovers, waiting to see such values into practices.

Thank you for your comments!

I wonder what role we can play in amplifying these words and calling the leaders and ourselves to task on them.

 I can only pray that these are more than just the seductive deceptive words of politicians!
