I found the article posted on Buber and the peace talks interesting, particularly the quotes regarding Jewish - Arab relations. I gather that Buber envisioned Jews and Arabs living as neighbors in a somewhat genuine sense of community. Establishing a Buber-style diolog will certainly help in promoting understanding between the two sides, but I'm not sure where it would lead. Does anyone have some thoughts as to how Buber's theology of dialog would be applied in practice to the specific issues in controversy, particularly the Jerusalem issue?
