Are the previous posters taking a sacrastic interpretation of Ms. Ockrent's idea and stretching it to the point of absurdity, or are they just completely out to lunch? Do we really need to hear why the dream is just a dream?

Willim W. Ame ,Awaso,Ghana:

Chistine,I beg to difer somehow
with some of your predictions;Firstly,F.W.Bush cannot and will never succeed
,in his stance,in ending the Israel-Palestine contension.If
the bone of contension between Israel and Palestine is the land of Canaan then the Palestinians(if there is any pure breed of such at all)must be fighting an everloosing battle culminating in devine justice.Nevertheless,if it is all about any other terrestrial barriar then the
notorious and monsterous papacy must be fathomed for its clandestine role in setting and fanning the middle east fire.The history of the papacy seeking to seize Jerusalem, through an ancient Arabo-Islamic Cohort,in a bid to make it a religious centre
and, thereafter,a vatican city headquaters, is no longer a secret.Islamic-Catholic relations are sure connections; we know it all.Ufortunately,there are many
affiliates of these two religio-political organisations
who remain,forever,ignorant of these facts.Many will remain so ignorant because they hate the truth and the exposition of
the truth in preference to evil and lies.For example,it pains to get to know the truth
that Roman Catholic IS NOT,for true,a Christian Religion and should not be considered as such looking back at its evil track record of trying, unsuccessfully,to destroy simple and pure unadultrated christianity.
A gain,it is not pragmatic to
be so optimistic about the future president of France or any other country's future leader,no because ascendace to
such thrones involve many intricate factors,such greed,pride,racism not to mention scandals.In the present world, one must be ready for any unforeseeable
eventuality.Believe it or not the everlasting Kingdom of Christ is the greatest and I will advise you to seek it now.


What a beautiful dream!
Tell me, what have you been smoking over Christmas? I guess it wasn't turkey....perhaps something from Turkey!

But your point is well noted. We are desparately in need of a lot of things.....

Mark Sounder, Portland Oregon, USA:

Christine: While some of the other prognosticators appear to be naive in their 2007 predictions, your thoughts seem to be muddled by abject stupidity. The politicians of the world are abjectly corrupt people who operate with only themselves in mind. Bush, Merkel and the yet to be named French-made bone head will lie, cheat, steal and murder as viciously as any others in current and recent history. From them you can expect no better than they have already demonstrated - they are useless and operate in modes that are counterproductive to the human good. Wake up while you can still smell the coffee and call for revolutions against these hideous charlatans of leadership.
