The author explains that Middle East peacemakers should take cue from what has been happening in Northern Ireland. The dispute there between Protestants and Catholics has been bloody and has lasted for more than three centuries. Yet there now seems to be real progress toward peace. The reason is not because diplomats suddenly became more able but because of the profound changes to the south, in the Republic of Ireland, which for centuries had been one of the poorest economies in western Europe.
