First,I am at a loss to understand what the 'Jewish only' settlements, roads and barrier on the most arable and water rich lands of the Palestinians has to do with defending yourself? I am equally puzzled by those of you who invoke the horror and history of the Holocaust as political justification for Israel's acts today. One of the great influences in my life was a holocaust survivor from Poland. If she were alive today she would go ballistic over the use of what she called the 'Sho'ah' to justify Israel's conduct. She spared no one when it came to the abandonment of the Jews under German occupation, including my own country of which she was a citizen AND the Zionist leadership and various agencies of the day! I am grateful to her for forcing me to learn about Canada's role and own it. Don't you think its time you owned yours, instead of using the dead for political gain? Are the True Torah Jews the only ones left telling the whole story?
