    I go to Ramallah often. I even lived in a militant filled refugee camp while the IDF invaded and attacked Nablus. Now I"m in Tel Aviv. I have friends in Ramallah, you know many non-Arabs who live there...many Jews live there too. Isac, you wish that the situation was as black and white so you could justify the racism of our society. Yet, nearly every other society can easily point fingers at Israeli racism and chauvinism because it is such a dominant (and ignorant) feature of what Israel is. Don't believe what this guys says, it's very easy to disprove. Reality is what people like this deny - they feel empowered by their influence in narratives of the world, so they think reality is irrelevant.
