Very well put. Count me among the critics willing to think of Israel with affection IF she were to do what you state. The vast majority of posters in these boards are living in a parallel universe and are entirely oblivious to the fact that their attitudes are what's wrong with Israel and her policies. If Jews are really smarter than others, why is it that they can't see the obvious? Do they really think they are going to convince the rest of us to become racists in order not to object?
