    guys (ladies?(, there is an interesting issue developing here: El Birawi gives a sign of his positive, humanistic and probably sincere view on life: whatever the hate you have for your 'enemy', everybody, including your enemy should be seen as a human being and should be supported when ill. Ziggurat gives this concept a negative twist: he focuses on the animosity, the negative. He probably cannot perceive that Sharion is considered a terrorist by the Palestinians just like the Israelis consider Palestinians like Marwan Barghouti a terrorist. This (pro)Palestinian contribution and its pro-Israeli reply is a good example of the general fact that Palestinians in internetforums tend to write more respectful about their 'enemy leaders', whereas people who support Israel are generally far more hateful and negative about their 'enemies'. For example, I didn't read even one contribution of support from the pro-Israeli camp for Arafats health when he was in the proces of dying. The Israeli concept is that their enemies are all terrorists, and therefore are equal to dogs and insects. The terrorist crimes and the assumed support of all Palestinian leaders for this is such a strong Israeli dogma, that a sick Palestinian leader doesn't inflict Israeli empathy, rather overt or covert celebration. (ANd please, don't star answering me with all your stories about the 'primitiev Arab' that prefers to butcher Jews etc, etc. I am talking about contributions in internet forums like Talkback. I am talking about linguistics and politeness of proper human beings like you and me, I am not talking about the acts of the terrorists or the Israeli occupation forces)
