    I can see the dilemma, you are facing, sg. The problem is, the ongoing conflict with the Palestinians is only increasing the spirale of hate that you find yourself in for many, many years now. You may say that (at least when it comes to the Arabs) this hate has always been there. But I think in Europe it's a (very) different picture. After WW2 the Jewish people had a tremendous sympathy and compassion bonus by the "mainstream" people in Europe, no doubt about it. This was still the case when I grew up (in the 70's and early 80's). But I think the whole picture began to change with the first Palestinian Intifada at the end of the 80's and Israels quite harsh reaction to it. It was also only by then, when average people in Europe really got aware of the whole settle- ment issue. Therefore, to change this painful, negative dynamics, you need a (fair) separation from the Palestinians. The sooner, the better.
