: I believe that the Israeli government, much like the American government, is out of control. Regular citizens like you and I, and the average Israeli, do not want these wars on "terrorism" that never end. Everyone wants peace and security, except for those right wing extremists... in America, in Israel, in Palestine... don't you ever read about the Peace demonstrations in Israel?
: Don't be hypocritical. You raised good points, but you have to be even and balanced in these types of discussions.
xxx I'm NOT being hypocritical - I've said EXACTLY what you are saying before, Jeff. Even on the phone to you, I've said these things - remember how I said it's important for the Palestinians not to lose hope, because there are people in Israel who give a damn? & I've also posted statements that not all Jews stand behind the Israeli government (e.g. the Jewish lesbian philosphy professor I know who hates Sharon & Bush). You are taking something that I say out of the context [of what I've said before] & attempting to belittle my argument by calling me a hypocrite. I was merely pointing out that there is a major difference, between the 2 sides, over what they are fighting for. You are grossly over-simplifying my stance.
