    We Israelis must learn that FORCE is not the only solution to uncertainty. We can actually sway situations with our Arab neighbors by being neighborly! - kind, generous, curious - all the social skills that Israeli could brush up on a bit!

They would think, "Wow, these Israelis are not arrogant, aggressive and fearful neighbors - believe it or not, they want the same things we do!" Smart Israelis: think of 10 more examples like this!
