Wonderful article by Caroline Poplin ("A costly victory for Israel," Aug. 7). As a Palestinian American — one of the "moderates" she mentions — I know that it is vital for Palestinians and Israelis to live side-by-side in peace. Many people I speak to express hopelessness about the situation, but I believe peace is not only achievable but inevitable. Leaders on both sides must take a hard look at how this continuing unresolved conflict is destroying a generation of young people on both sides and do what is needed to end it. It's not too late for peace.
