I would just add that there is a certain segment of the population (like myself) that has voted for Likud and other 'right wing' parties NOT because they share their some of the rank and file's disdain for the liberties others.

Their polices, however pure their intentions, will end up endangering the liberties of both Jews and Arabs. That is because the most important human liberty is the right to life.
