    Thanks for the support. I am actually not sure about Ramon, I don`t really care. It belongs more in the gossip-corner of the news papers(although of course it is a personal drama for mr Ramon) But something else you wrote should be repeated: the Israeli people are VERY MUCH ok! For a nation in such a confusing situation I think none of us would do any better and one might even think that many European nations would do far worse. But this doesn`t mean that everything Israel does is ok. And more important: all the obvious not-so-ok things Israel does shouldn`t be defended by so many Israelis as something `very ok`. Like Michael Moore explained so clearly in Fahrenheit 9/11: if you repeat in all the media that your country is in mortal danger, after a while the people believe it. That`s how the US got stuck in Iraq now. That`s why Israel is stuck in the occupied territories and we should somehow help the Israelis to stop believing the `we-are-in-mortal-danger`-idiots.
