    Do you think the Middle East will ever be peacefull?

    is it a realistic idea that peace will ever occur for the middle east as a whole or is it always going to be a hot-bed for violence?

    It is my opinion that it will never end. Religion has a powerful hold on that region in an unhealthy manner. I seriously doubt that will ever change,and that's the basis that the extremists use to fuel their membership. No different than gangs in urban areas in America. There will always be lost sheep looking for something to live for,believe in and support with everything they have and are.

    There are some places that are peaceful, and others will be. I think the seed of violence being planted today, and the progressing partitioning in the society, will definitely have a place in the future.

    During the period of Ottoman rule, which lasted for approximately one thousand years, until 1918, it was largely a peaceful region.
    The Balfour Declaration, and the founding of The State of Israel, put "the cat amongst the pigeons".
    Until both those problems are resolved there will never be peace.

    I highly doubt it. They've been at war with themselves for a couple thousand years... Forget Western influence, this has been going on for so long no one knows what they are fighting about anymore. I doubt they will ever be peaceful until religions learn to tolerate each other and countries stop trying to force civil war to take their oil while they are distracted.

    I think it can but it will take a lot of will, respect and cooperation among the countries. I do not see that happening in my lifetime

    No, I don't think peace will ever be enjoyed in that region.  There has never been a lasting peace in the middle East.

    Even before Christ walked the earth the middle east has been a hot spot.

    I believe that once these countries get rid of their authoritative theocracies and replace them with some form of elected government that allows the will of the people to be heard there will be some movement towards peace.  Until then, the religious zealots will do their best to hold power.

    Yes Ahmed, most people don't realize that the US was to blame for the invasion of Spain in the middle ages...  I agree there have been poor, if not sometimes evil, choices by western leaders that go centuries back, but do they cause young men to strap bombs to themselves or to their wives?  Do they cause them to not allow their daughters to learn to read?  naaa..   If the US quit giving money to Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Palestine and other Mideast countries today they would be hated even more...

    I don't know why we would expect to force peace on a region that has been volatile for eons. With all of the religious turmoil, going back for centuries, it's an area that is important to too many opposing groups of people.  As a Christian I am glad that we are not still part of the "fight for Jerusalem" anymore, but that doesn't mean the fight is over for others. It's a shame too because our great religious sites are basically held hostage by those still fighting.

    The real problem is the politicians just say we are seeking peace but they don't do real efforts for making peace possible just just do negotiations for the sake of negotiation and to be seen in the media that they are doing effort & if they are really serious about the peace they must surrender the policies for double standards. Politicians have big agendas which they must fulfill they are not worried about the lost of innocent live every second in this world.
