Perceptively written and thank you for that. My take away is this key observation - and challenge for us all:
"That ability to recognize one’s adversary as a human being, and embrace them as such, is particularly potent in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. On both sides of the divide, people say the deepest issue is not borders or security or holy sites but simply a willingness to recognize the “other” as legitimate and equal."
Clearly, the world has work to do - not just Israel and Palestine.
