In fact I am going to one this weekend, I am going there working concessions for a fundraiser for my nieces high school. I just don't think MORE
intolerance is what the Middle East needs at the moment. Perhaps afterwards if a reliable peace has been established then we can get the race circuit
to go there.

Perhaps God is working through me to bring peace to the Middle East? (I'm not saying he is, but what if?) What if God has given me this idea? They do
say that the lord works in mysterious ways. Perhaps god has deemed that the largest party in the history of mankind is exactly what is needed to bring
about true peace in the region? Perhaps God came to me in a dream and said "Let there be beer, and when there is beer, he will see it and see that it
To say that there never will be peace until God says so is quite defeatist and I refuse to think that is what God wants. I believe that not only is
peace possible, it's desired, and it can work.

I am thinking of this, this is why I am thinking of this plan. I don't believe that these people really want to fight each other. The people I have
met from Palestine, Israel, Pakistan, Iraq, all are peace loving and good people. What they are fighting is Ideology. I just want to perhaps tweak
that Ideology and pander to the younger generation. The generation that is not so entrenched in the belief of hate. The generation that is willing to
embrace change. This is where the plan will work. The problem in the past is that they are trying to change the minds of the older folk. The problem
in that is as one gets older people tend to not embrace change so readily. However those that are younger wish for change, they desire it, and they
are generally angry that it does not come. What if perhaps thinking outside of generally accepted ideas on how to come about peace (which obviously
isn't working) is how to do it?
I really don't see why both sides of the issue cannot peacefully co exist together. I really don't see why Palestinians and Israelis cannot live
together in peace and harmony as a testament to the world of a better tomorrow. What is needed is something monumental. Something so large and
encompassing that those in attendance can see with their own eyes both sides wanting the same thing. What I envision is a party so large that the
world will sit up, take notice, and know that peace is not only possible, not only desired, but demanded.
Peace by brute force does not work. Peace at the end of a knife is not the solution. Peace brought about by the sharing of goodwill and the true
essence of fun is the solution. It's obvious to me that the current methods of peace talks are not the solution. As well, fighting doesn't work. So
I proposed a different strategy, fun.
It may work and it may not, but if I can at least attempt this idea, then I can go to my grave and say I tried. If it works I can go to my grave
leaving the world a better place than I found it.
