I enjoyed the article and appreciate what appears to be an honest attempt to speak up. But I'm dissapointed that the final argument is simply "i'd rather be the stronger one". Its so simplistic and seems like an attempt to clear the writer of the moral responsibility to fight against an unjust occupation...not just make it somehow more pleasant for the humiliated. Surely, Jews know whats its like to be the weaker side...was it made ok just because a german solder smiled and gave you a drink of water?? I just hope that if one day the boot is on the other foot, the palestinians will stand up and refuse to treat others the way they had previously been treated.
