Let businesses point the way to peace

ElectionsBusinessTrade Dispute

Palestinians want a prosperous nation. Israel wants a permanent peace ("Israelis debate ground invasion," Nov. 20).

Non-government sponsored businesses make profit from peace and free trade, regardless of the ideology of their owners. The owners will therefore tend to vote for peace and free trade, which will increase profit for their businesses.

Israeli and Palestinian business owners and leaders should vote first, based on number of employees and tax revenue. Pass this vote to the people in the general elections, pointing out that these are the experts on creating jobs and prosperity. This will lead to national prosperity and a permanent peace.
