The boredom and the lack of values in britain is opening space for many brits to search for a meaning to their lives, unfortunately some end up in pro-Palestinian political "sects" that are generously funded by the huge amounts of enemies Israel has. One sees even in these talkbacks here in haaretz, people who have absolutely no connection with the Palestinians go to extremes in their favor devoid of any sense reason, these guys are not in favor of a peaceful settlement. They repeat the slogan of being "against the occupation" which is extremely fluid and tricky. If taken litteraly and in the Palestinian terms it means ultimately the end of Israel, which is unnacceptable by any reasonable standard. Perhaps the editor of the Guardian finally realized that it is more rational and productive being in favor of peace rather than taking sides.
