    Hi Tzfonit and Uliana. Tzfonit I had meant to get back to you but got involved in other matters.In any case this looks like a good time. Uliana you are correct in statimg that Israel certainly has a large burden to bear in creating the refugee problem.There are several books on the subject but two come to mind. Benny Morris spent days and days going through "Official" Israeli documents which confirm that the policy was to "force "the Palestinians out.His book "Righteous Victims" makes for very disturbing reading.David K Shipler in his book, "The Arab and The Jew" Spends a considerable time on the subject. What is needed is a "Truth and Reconciliation committee" such as was run in South Africa . The process works because they do not result in proscecutions and do much to heal. It is also a way for Israelis to share their sufferings and feelings and those atrocities can also be recognised. Northern Ireland reached a huge milestone yesterday.Lets hope the same for Israel/Palestine
