Murray: I am neither happy nor unhappy with the situation, and disapprove of what "the settlements" have become. That has nothing to do with facts. Fact: the Palestinians are NOT Israeli citizens and have no desire to be so. Fact: The Palestinians declared a perpetural state of war between themselves and Israel. Fact: Apartheid is an INTERNAL oilicy, not one applying to foreign citizens. (If it were otherwise, the US would be "Apartheid" for its treatment of Mexicans. So would many governments re citizens of their neighbors residing illegally in their territory.) The PA is responsible for the needs of the Palestinians, the Israeli government is responsible for the needs of Israelis. How would you like the Italian government to put the needs of, say, the Swiss above the needs of its own taxpayers? Fact: You assume that these gas masks are real lrotections, which they're not. In short, you lack facts but are long on meaningless words. That says a lot about you.
