The Show That Never Ends

I'm a reasonably well-informed person. I pray daily for peace. I try to act charitably, socially, and politically, based on my understanding of major world tragedies, such as wars, to help relieve suffering.

However much as it pains me to say this, I completely sick and tired of this particular corner of the world's problems. I know I'm supposed to care. I know that this is a tremendous problem on the world's stage, and the cause of many problems that affect me directly, but FOR CRYING OUT LOUD - ENOUGH ALREADY! 2000 years at least, 60 years since the first war, more than 40 years since the '67 war, and they can't work it out?

I now firmly believe there are no victims here, except the everyday folks who want to make a buck and be left alone. Both sides share the blame, and until we lock them in a room, with Dr. Phil for example, I could go the rest of my life without hearing the phrases, Gaza, West Bank, Two-State Solution, Hamas, Likud, Oslo Accords..........if neither side wants a solution, and I'm starting to believe neither side does, then enough already.

Am I the only person who feels this way?
