Pipe Dream VS. Pipe Bomb

As I was listening to the news yesterday about the continuing fighting in "Palestine" (not with the Jews mind you, but amongst themselves), I couldn't help but think about all the pro-“Palestinian” people here in the US that blame all the turmoil there on Israel. Does this illustrate to anyone else that these people can't even co-exist with each other let alone another race/religion.

I know I've said this before, but it irks me that we are painted as Evil America and Intolerant America when we have every race/religion living here. We seem to manage to peacefully co-exist without forming sects and battling in the streets. The "Palestinians" can't stand each other. The Iraqis are killing people that believe a slightly different variation of Allah's will and the Indians and Pakistanis are still killing each other over real estate.

Can we get a little credit here? And can we stop pretending that there will EVER be peace in the Middle East?
