    Smadar, Walid, Israeli, Danite should know that Jane Fonda et al likely don't even know why they are boycotting the celebration of Tel Aviv's centenary. Here's what they should have explained: There were already several Arab villages in those sand dunes when Tel Aviv was founded. Sheikh Munis (now Tel Aviv University Campus), Salameh (Kfar Shalem), Al-Manshieyyeh, (Dan Panorama/Dolphinarium/Florentine/Shuk HaCarmel) to mention only the largest ones - apart from Jaffa of course which already existed when King David conquered it. Only Jaffa still has Arabs living in it. If these facts had been alluded to in the context of those celebrations Jane Fonda and her friends would be wrong to boycott them. However they have been totally ignored. Until history stops being warped by omission, there can never be peace.
