Short relief for the Palestinian/Israel situation

 If you’re like me, the recent declaration of a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas leaves little relief.  I’m often left with questions of how what is arguably the most sacred spot can become so ramp with conflict and aggression.  When I finally decided to learn about the creation of Israel, I was amazed at its historical significance.  We have plenty of books on this issue, so that you too can shake your head with the weariness of a prodigy and exclaim, “Ah, of course if they’re sharing the same religious text, they’re going to have holy sites only blocks away from each other!”
