Israel is less fundmentalist than ANY Islamic state and, indeed, most states in thw orld. What Israel confronts everyday is on a much smaller scale what caused many Western States to declare emergencies, Marshall law and more generally the suspension of human rights. Israel is a beacon of light. It strikes me that Israel is deplorable, except compared to virtually all other states IN SIMILAR circumstances. Of course, no other state exists in order to give a people that have been persecuted throughout history and continue to be persecuted today, a fighting chance. You and Gideon just don't like that. \ Incidentally, where in the Arab world is there a journalist who shows the slightest insight and support for the Israeli cause? Yah you can say, of course not because there is not merit to that cause, but that rings extraordinarily hollow. Your views are more than suspect and harbour what you well know are hateful feelings.
