    Ms. Hass. I am not a right winger. I believe Israel will have to give up a lot of territory if it wants to ever live a normal life. I think that Netanyahu has overplayed his hand with Abu Mazen, even though Abu Mazen has wasted so many wonderful oportunities himself, as in the final days of Olmert's leadership, when he could have had a great deal. But you are so far left, that when even the biggest Palestinian supporters have to admit that Israel is in the right, you cry and sit shiva. The poor Palestinians in Gaza, who have done nothing since Israel left every inch of their God-forsaken land but to try to murder the Israelis who left their territory, shoot hundred of rockets against Israeli civilians for month on end. So when Israel finally has to respond, for the first time in ages every single Western European country, as well as the openly anti-Israel European Union, comes out in full support of Israel's right to defend itself. Does that make you think, "Perhaps my country is actually justified for a change?" No, you go bananas at how gullible and how blind they are to Israel's monstrosities. Why don't you do yourself and all of us a favor and leave the country you so obviously despise?
