VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - Pope John Paul (news - web sites) told Palestinian President Yasser Arafat (news - web sites) on Thursday the Middle East had reached a point of ``unheard of'' violence and urged both Arabs and Israelis to break a cycle of attacks and reprisals. The Pope and Arafat, who is on a 24-hour visit to Rome, talked for 25 minutes at the pontiff's summer residence at Castelgandolfo, southeast of Rome. A statement issued at the Vatican (news - web sites) said the Pope felt the Middle East was mired in ``unheard of violence which continues to mow down victims, above all among the civilian and unarmed population.'' ``His Holiness...firmly repeated that there is an absolute need to put an end to all types of violence, be they attacks or reprisals, and to get the much hoped for negotiations on the table,'' the statement said What do you think about the whole situation? Will it continue for another thousand years or the end is in sight?
