    Kol-- I am so glad you wrote in and requested tha Leon write and interact more with readers/writers. I think that's a wonderful idea. Johanes Franzen might not like --so what? Leon shouldn't worry about fitting into Johanes mold. Johanes should come out of his mold anyway. I think many people here will accept this-- some maybe outraged. So what! Let them be outraged. It might do them some good. Yes , I agree some people's thinking can dull but their dreams and their aspirations are not. So why not play to this aspect to move ideas forward. I have said many times Israel's is determing too much what's on the menu and people want more choices. I think people in general people are much more outgoing in their ways than we give them credit for. The world is becoming more global in its perspective and so are people. More countries are removing borders and constraints. Israel is going in the wrong direct and must remove its inhumane wall. It must remove it. 150 countries have spoken against it. Indeed, I feel people are much more liberal than their governments allow them to be. Let's embrace a new century which I feel is more open and free and with removing their borders ,etc. Israel has a great opportunity to lead in these markets in the 21 century . It can claim to be the birthplace of the world's four major religions All the more reason to be more cosmopolitian in its approach. The shackles of Zionism must be removed and a movement forward must begin. . That Live and Let live view should lead the way. Dutch

This Valentine's day, celebrate not love, but the sublime bond of friendship

Friendship is free of the indignities, suffering and drama that characterize romantic love; it doesn't have an expiration date; we rarely suspect it to be a figment of our imagination. But love is what fuels our economy.
