Now that I have lived here for 5 years,(I am actually here for personal reasons not "idealistic ones),my opinions are still shouted down by right wingers.Whilst I can understand various "reasons" for settlements,for instance security,... they want all of Israel,..we are 9 miles wide.etc.,the main occupation of our leaders ,quite understandably, seems to be increasing or upholding the Jewish demographic majority.Because I am secular,dont believe "God given rights" ,and prefer to think live and behave as an individual,and cannot have an 'us and them' mentality,but prefer to say an individual is good or bad,my feelings are directed to mister average on either side,who just wishes to live safely and love his fellow man.This is,in fact,what secular Jews do in other countries ,living relatively safely.For 65 years I lived in the UK and did not experience anti semitism.or other problems.The extreme Muslim behaviour everywhere is worrying,but it is to the average Muslim. also.I, J Street and lots of others,feel that maybe Israel is harming itself and more importantly (to me) the individuals who live here,AND Jews elsewhere who get blamed for everything Israel says or does,which is seen as "not good'.Do we have a 2 state solution? Is that our true aim? We send out mixed signals.There is so much here that is good compared with our neighbours.However,because of our position I feel we risk reaching a position of no return. Personally I wish Israel only good,but worry that our leaders are putting Israel,and more importantly its citizens at grave risk.
