Pope: Truces imposed by force won’t bring peace to Middle East

He’s been dipping into Robert Frost lately.

ROME – Closing an ecumenical encounter with Christian leaders from the Middle East, Pope Francis on Saturday said that “truces maintained by walls and displays of power will not lead to peace,” only a concrete desire to engage in dialogue will work.

Seriously, folks, can’t he come up with something not market-tested? OK words abound, do they not?

(Robert Frost? Here. He could do worse, I grant you. Yet and still . . . )

Also, how were them dialogs with Palestinians led (a while back) by the likes of Yassir Arafat and friends? Intransigents all.
