    As a veteran of the Yom Kippur War and many years of service both in settlement and Zahal, I understand your disappointment with critics who are arm chair Zionists. Living in Western safety and luxury while attacking your opinions and views of policy currently in Israel. I always felt it was a rule of faith, while in uniform never to be politically active, my first loyalty was always to the Army and the country. As a Jew living in the west despite the years of sacrifice and service my family and I made, I have no right to attack those who are there now. Israeli's live in Israel!. The rest of us as much as we may love our country and people, we live elsewhere, as Nomi Shemer said we are absent sons. It is extremely rude to criticize your siblings care of your parents when you are far away providing little support and rarely visit. These absent sons may still have inheritance rights, but have done little to earn them. If you want a place at the family table, perhaps these cry babies should come home, spend a few weeks or months guarding the northern border in the winter mud, while their families get by with out them. I would not take these wankers to heart. Sincerely Marvin Crane Parsippany NJ, USA Army #2139081
