    I know we did mistakes like any country, and we should pay for those mistakes. Claiming that the world does not critic the Arabs, and only scrutinize the Jews, is no excuse for trying to correct our wrong doings. The state of Israel is now submerged by an enormous amount of disinformation. I believe the undisclosed material, although uncomfortable for us, will be meaningless compared to the sea of antisemitism we encounter right now. We might even benefit when people see that the reality was much nicer than the mischievous propaganda. On the other hand, there is no point in requiring similar disclosures from the Europeans or Arabs. They support Hamas who openly claim they want to kill all Jews. Europe peace lovers cheered up when they saw Jewish children die in Sderot, yet called us Nazis when we reacted. So nothing will help. But nothing can go worse either: its true that Europe would not critic the Arab states if, for example in 67', they would have annihilated the state of Israel. But what moral values can you expect from Europeans slave mentality, who gave up all their very elegant original culture and beliefs (e.g. Stonehedge?, Odin?, Thor?), for the Roman Medieval Christian heritage imposed on them. This mentality does not change: before our own eyes, they again give away their beliefs to another religion, Islam. We should open all the data, for our own knowledge and values, regardless of the world immorality.
