    I first came to Palestine in 1940, then served in Western Europe in WW-2, returned to still British ruled Palestine in August 1947 and volunteered in Israel's Independence war of 1948/49. I no longer was a Zionist but felt that 2000 years of persecution had been enough. I srved as samal mahlaka in Gdud 42, which participated in the ethnic cleansing campaign that drove out 700000 Palestinians from their lands and home. We were part of the conquerors of Lydda, now Lod, and witnessed atrocities both on our and Arab sides. Our actions in Lydda were worse than Dir Yassin. Rather than go into a blame game, the conflict has descended into getting even and of mutual revenge. If we and they continue on this path we will have another 100 years of inconclusive bloodshed, eventually involving nuclear arms. I love Israel but when I visit now, it breaks my heart. Our younger generation has become hard, cynical, racist. It has lost the humanity that expected us to be a Light unto the Nations.
