The events escalating in the Middle East are increasingly troubling, as Israel and Lebanon lob armaments at each other. Does the world really need another war in the Middle East? No.
A few years ago my wife joined other women on Middle East missions of peace, work seeking to reconcile Arabs, Christians and Jews. Where is peace now?
As if the war in Iraq isn’t enough already, now there is another. Today’s fighting follows the horrific bombing in Mumbai, India. This is a dark week for the Middle East and Western Asia.
There are no winners in war.
