Israel & Hezbollah
I can only hope that we helped answer some of your questions to Israel and Hezbollah. Both Dan Shaham of the Israeli Embassy in London and Nawar Al-Sahili, a Hezbollah MP in the Lebanese Parliament, took your calls the last two days. I wonder if any of you share my feeling that although fascinating to speak to them, perhaps next, we should get them both on the programme together to talk to each other! I'm also left with a nagging sense of futility. The conflict is so entrenched and the rhetoric so sophisticated, it's easy to see why countless diplomats, politicians, fighters and peacemakers have failed to find a lasting solution. Still, thanks for all your excellent comments and questions. Keep them coming, and we'll do our best to make sure the global conversation is not a dialogue of the deaf, but, as much as possible, a meaningful exchange.
