    A journalist assigned to the Jerusalem bureau has an apartment overlooking
    the Western Wall. Each day as she looks out her window, she sees an elderly
    Jewish man praying vigorously.
    Thinking he would be a good subject for an interview, the journalist
    goes down to the Wall one morning, and introduces herself to the old
    man. "Sir," she asks, "I've seen you come to the Wall every day. How
    long have you being doing so, and what do you pray for?"
    "I have come here to pray, every day, for over 25 years", the old
    man replies. "In the morning I pray for world peace and for the
    brotherhood of man. I go home and have a cup of tea, and then I come
    back, and very, very important, I pray for peace and understanding
    between the Israelis and Palestinians."
    The journalist is awestruck. "How does it make you feel to come here
    every day for 25 years and pray for these wonderful things?" she asks.
    The old man grimaces. "Like I'm talking to a fucking wall."


    Nuff said!


    p.s> maybe one day people will realize that religion and land are not worth fighting over. Life is about the experience, you get what you make out of it.
