...that the sentiments and intent of Amir's target was clearly not shared by all. Regarding your assertion about thousands of Palestinians subscribing to the abhorrent Hamas, I still cling, perhaps vainly, to the notion that there are many more thousands of Palestinian families, who do not. Just as there are many Israelis, secular and religious, who actively support moves for reconciliation and dialogue, such as Rabbis for Human Rights. To your wider point of an unfair comparison you make your point. All i can do is resist the abuse I get on this forum and try to advance the idea of ddialogue and reconciliation to take down walls, but I guess there are a few on this forum who don;t take kindly to that, i wish they'd express views and opinions rather than personal abuse though - I find that kind of reaction disappointing. But we must not abanson the field to the extremist nationalists.
