TheVoiceOfJoyce Great synopsis of the “perfect storm” , that created the fighting between Israelis & Hamas . It can de escalate. What will be the catalyst? Can all people agree to a process of understanding and trust , leading to a durable peace. It can take 3-5 yrs of work to get to a relationship? Who is committed to this work?

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce I saw a film, #Crescendo, that made a lot of sense. It was the formation of anOrchestra, consisting of equal numbers of Israeli & Palestinian musicians who join together, learn to talk to each other, see each and make beautiful music together. The Palestinians can do the same today. Reframe their dialogue with Israelis & seek a meaningful peace and prosperity for the Palestinian people. Brett Stephens has a point.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Striking Cultural Heritage sites is a War crime. It was heinous when ISIS wiped out “old civilizations “ & destroyed our collective past. If Trump ordered these strikes, it would hurt the People. All of us! The ancient world belongs to everyone.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce The true story behind, Syrian & Russian bombings of hospital & a child care center in Syria, during April and May of last year.

America Speaks TheVoiceOfJoyce As Iran blames American Sanctions, the People know better. They want a moderate form of Government and realize 25-30% of their resources have gone to the Republican Guards. Sorry for the Iranian People, they need necessities .

#AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce #If Congress disagrees with the Executive Branch of Government, why not invoke their right to declare War & let our troops remain to maintain Peace? Our troops pledge allegiance to the Constitution not a Monatch.
