I’ve looked at many blogs whose owners display hyperlinks to fellow bloggers who blog on the same topic as they do. There are also webrings which work on a similar concept.
I would like to create a directory of blogs devoted to Israeli-Palestinian peace based on the concept of a two state solution and mutual recognition. If your blog fits into this category, please contact me and let’s start cross-linking our blogs and/or create a webring based on the same principle.

Spare me your frequent bowing and the prayers you claim are for peace
While behind our backs you despise us and you dream of revenge in your sleep
Spare me your Koran reading and your efforts to obey the five pillars
For Allah has never been master of, those who hate and murder
Spare me your frequent chanting and the wisdom you claim brings peace
While your exalted state of mind allows you to commit war crimes, with bodies littering the streets
Spare me your enlightenment and how you think you are one with creation
For Shang-Ti called you to love, yet your deeds prove your damnation
Spare me your chorus singing and the sermons that
speak of peace
While your prisons stay full from the vicims you kill
and survivors can only weep
Spare me your Holy Scriptures, for it has not changed your ways
For Jehovah called you to love your neighbor, but this you have never obeyed
Spare me your political speaches and the treaties you claim produce peace
For the very same hands, push daggers in men, in order to stop their heart beat
Spare me your laws and vast learning and how you think it will make us unite
For peace will never be possible, when people desire to fight

I’ve debated long and hard about the above Comment. Of course, it is right-wing Christian fundamentalist racist screed. I’ve visited the author’s evangelical, apocalyptic site and it’s full of religious rants. He seems to hail from a small town somewhere in Texas, where much of this type of political-religious tripe seems to originate.
I’ve decided to leave the comment here so that a blog visitor can read the type of anti-Arab rant that is characateristic of Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson and the rest of his fervent followers. But I have banned the author’s IP so that he cannot leave further comments.
This is what those of us who want peace between Israelis & Palestinians have to overcome in our daily discourse.
