New Rules for Middle East Engagement

The "God's Politics" blog recently posted a visionary, thought-provoking article:
New Rules for Middle East Engagement

It makes more sense than just about anything else I've read, thus far, about the conventional rules vs the new rules -- and what could lead to peace and to effectively defuse the crisis in Israel/Gaza. It is authored by Eboo Patel, founder and executive director of the Interfaith Youth Core, a Chicago-based international nonprofit that promotes interfaith cooperation.

Patel's blog, The Faith Divide, explores what drives faiths apart - and what actually brings them together.


The biggest challenge is getting leaders that can make a difference to take this stuff seriously. [Sigh] Once again, folks among the general populace are going to have to take the lead - then maybe the so-called "leaders" will eventually follow.
