    The fact that this article is published in an important Israeli newspaper demonstrates Israeli democracy.- Five years ago Isreael retreated from Gaza. Immediately Hamas attacked Israeli civilian population with rockets. . These facts were conveniently forgotten by Professor Siegman. . Hamas refuses to let the Red Cross to see prisoner Gilad Shalit. - U.N. sources quoted in the article are not necessarily objective because many members of the UN are far from being trustworthy democracies. -The rulers of Gaza do not try to improve the condition of the civil population under their rule and their policy is successful in spreading support for Hamas in Western democracies.

Why is it hard to fall in love, and even harder to sustain it?

The answer can be summed up in one word, narcissism, which manifests itself in three principal ways. There are ways to overcome this love of self, however.
