July 25, 2014 10:35 AM Middle East Conflict: Need for Credible Mediator

Amid the death and destruction raining down on the Gaza Strip there is a sliver of hope. Seldom have the makings for a mutually-agreed long term arrangement that would give both parties a degree of stability and security and allow for Palestinian as well as Israeli economic growth, been better than today.

Beyond a ceasefire in Gaza and any associated interim agreement no matter who might broker it, the two-state solution, which is backed by international consensus, is dying because of an Israeli decision with help from Hamas.

As a human being fortunate enough to painfully observe, and not be victim to, the atrocities ongoing in our world today, I've noticed a tech-based trend when it comes to caring. Social media has played a triumphant role in magnifying what bothers its users -- us, the younger generation. This "bother", however, doesn't appear to have any kind of long-term 21
