    Glad to know that we're really on the same side and like minded.It's appalling the way that Israel is set up as the world's Aunt Sally for having the temerity to defend itself from ruthless,cynical terrorism.Me,I examine things for myself and make up my own mind and not just go along with the received wisdom of people with little discernment and their own questionable agendas. When the government of Israel deserves criticism,it gets it from me,including in these columns.But I always hold it in my mind that Israel is under constant attack and,like it or not,one has to allow for the expediencies of war.I'd rather live with the Israeli government than Hamas and Fatah and pity the Palestinian Arabs who have to endure their self-seeking masters. Israel is lucky to have such a strong democracy and I wish that Britain were so lucky.Can only wish that there were peace so that Israel could get the full benefit of it. THREE CHEERS FOR ISRAEL!!!
