    Well, first of all, I have been following the conflict for decades now closely, unlike anyone in Toronto who's Israeli born, especially being a woman as well. I am definitely a supporter of a Jewish Israel, being the only democratic state, multicultural, progressive, socioeconomically diverse, country in the region. In the late, 1950's my father was involved with the political party Mapam, probably today Meretz, and he's a great barometer for me with regards to all issues. He was born in Iraq, speaks Hebrew, Arabic and English. Both my parents studied at Hebrew University in Jerusalem in the late 1950's. Today, in his 70's lectures on Middle Eastern politics, biblical Israel, etc. They've always been moderates and endured obstacles which could have made them opposite in thinking. So therefore, I believe a perspective of compromise, empathy and reason, is a must by all Israelis and Diaspora Jews.
