I know what you mean, but this 'conflict' isn't really new. I take an interest in what happens in the Middle East because I take a natural interest in current affairs, so I'm not really 'sick' of the Middle East (just as I am not sick of hearing/watching/reading the news elsewhere).
I suppose I just accept more readily that humans seem to be just as territorial as lions in Africa!
In the end, I do think both sides want an end, but they see differing ways of getting there. I don't want to offend anyone, but I personally think the religious beliefs that have been such a problem on both sides should just be dropped in favour of pragmatism.

How did u read my mind David B.?
I'm sick of all that crap in the middle east too. None of these people learn anything, they just carry their own personal vendetta's regardless what anyone say's. I would'nt shed any tears if that area of the world was wiped of the map tomorrow!!.

Its gotten to the point, for me, that I just have stopped caring. I don't care if a suicide bomber blows up Israel. It happens almost every day now. It is depressing, so I just don't care. There will probably be no end to that freaking 'conflict' until the apocalypse... Alot of it is propeganda. Terrorize so you can fight. The US is using it as a way to get into Iraq, it seems. I have just stopped caring.
Sometimes I think I would like to go off and farm sheep and cows on some secluded Irish Hillside just to get away from it all...with access to A.net of course...

Every time I see the latest Mideast-violence story on TV, I have this feeling that I could have seen the precise same thing five, ten, or even twenty years ago. It's almost as if nothing ever changes in that part of the world.
