    I find Amira a proponent for moral behavior, although I find her misguided and looney. However, there are several lessons to be learned from a Nakba: How and when is it ok to expel a hostile population from one's midst? This is the eternal question because the Naqba is described as "ultimate racist ethnic cleansing" Nazi style or then it is described as a legitimate defensive measure (at least accoding to history books). The only lesson we should learn from the Naqba is accept our on crimes and immorality but not give in to the enemies and their appeals to emotion, and false appeals at that. The Naqba was largely a failed attempt to destroy Palestine's Jewry. Amira should learn that her life is in existence today in this form because of her predecessors who fought and sacrificed their lives so an independent Jewish state could be born, and act as a safe haven for Jews. Now, how is that possible when racist Arabs surround it? Jews become increasingly racist in turn.
