On Friday, Becky took to the streets of east Jerusalem to see how residents there were responding to calls by independent Palestinian politician Mustafa Barghouti to come out and show solidarity with the people of Gaza.

A future of peace or conflict?

We've been here in Jerusalem for little over a week and have covered the latest in what's been a cycle of violence between Israel & Gaza. We have spoken to officials from both sides and have reported on the daily movements in the military conflict. But as always we wanted to hear how this conflict is being viewed by the young people who call here home. They are a varied and diverse bunch and it was always going to be a challenge to find a group that represents all facets of this place. But we did manage to bring together four young people to see what they think about today's events and whether they are more or less inclined to work for peace in the future.

But in a place so entrenched in the realities of conflict, can a mere tram line transcend divides and pave the track to coexistence?

After endless cycles of violence followed by periods of tense peace, Israelis and Palestinians and much of the rest of the world wonder if there can ever be a lasting peace. I sat down with David Grossman to get his views about that. He's an acclaimed author and peace activist. His books have been translated into 40 languages and include "To the End of the Land" and "Falling out of Time." Here's what he had to say about the prospects for peace, the weakness of Israel's peace camp and some surprising words of support for Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

What do you think about what' David's thoughts?
