As the equal and even-handed treatment that Arab and Israeli citizens experience inside the United States begins to be mirrored in the official international policies of the U.S. government, so the possibility of lasting peace in the Middle East will be realized. The shackling of U.S./Israel alliance against the Arabs to cold war politics is no longer necessary and has not only complicated the oil supplies but has misrepresented Christian/Moslem relations.
As Moslems separate Moslem education from past Western antagonism to Mohammed and Christians respect Mohammed's position as the Moslem prophet and Christ as the Son of the Creator of the world, so an atmosphere of mutual respect can develop. Abrahams God, whom Moslems respect, must have made it possible for Christs Father, whom Christians respect, to love all while his light shines increasingly into every heart.
