    Another day, another "fill in the blank" article from Amira Hass. ASide from the fact that I disagree with Hass poltically, her writing style (and subject matter) is BORING, REPETETIVE and UNINFORMING. It is as if she bought a pack of old MAD-LIBS calibrated to "Anti-Israel" setting, and just started filling in the blanks on a weekly basis. Every article is the same. _____ (fill in Arab name) is a _____ (fill in number) resident of ______ (fill in name of West Bank village). His family has tended to the same ____ (choose one: Olive Orchard/Chicken Coup, Orange Grove) for nearly _______ (choose one: 1000/2000/3000) years. When asked what he wants most in life he says, with a _____ (choose one: warm smile/polite grin/hopeful yet sad look) "All we as Palestinians want is to _______ (choose one: live in peace/share the land with our Israeli brothers and sisters/PEACE/Harmony). But _____ (fill in name from #1) dreams have been ______ (choose one: bulldozed/torn to shred) by Israel
