great article and analogy. to follow it further, like most addictions the first problem is dealing with denial and self unawareness.Most Israelis and Palestinians were born addicted, prejudiced, and totally unaware of their condition. Travel, discussion,reading opposing points of view, intermingling can all bring enlightenment. If America can make peace and establish productive relations with former ennemies like vietnam, china, and japan, then Arabs and Israelis can kick the habit of hate, stereotyping, and violence. What can the readers and responders of this site do? Stop arguing, one upping, putting down, stereotyping each other. Read, listen, respond with facts and soft spoken subjective perception and not reflexive stereotyped propaganda. As a jew who served in Hebron in the first intifada, my experiance supports akiva eldars account. I refused to return, risked jail, and am pleased that finally the destructive nature of occupation on the occupiers is emerging as a major issue.. Jews defile their Jewishness by suppressing an other people.
