    Salaam El-Birawi, Keyfa Haaluk? Just wanted to comment on something: "Israel is addicted to the occupation, and Israelis feel so proud of their occupation", SOME Israelis feel proud of the occupation, many think it's unjust, cruel, and highly embarrassing. Don't be fooled by the extremists you see or hear about: there are more moderates out there than what seems to be the case, although the intifada has unfortunately greatly weakened their voice (as occupation has probably done to the voice of moderate Palestinians, I'm just guessing...???). Violence radicalises people, and we have seen that both with Arabs and with Jews. Still, though, most Jews I know don't agree with the current policies of the State of Israel. That might be a sample error, as I move around in predominantly liberal circles, but still... Many of us support you in wanting to end this horror movie. 'Humanity is left' in many of us, I just hope we'll be able to convince the rest... Kind regards to you and your family, Yair
