    I feel sorry for this man, apparently he cannot comprehend the importance of having a Jewish state. As a Jew, living in diaspora, I feel that the only thing that protects my right to be, is the State of Israel. I feel Israel is the only place that I can call and feel home. Right now with all this turmoil in the middle-east, we need to be united and strong as all of the Jews around the world. We have to support the State of Israel, no matter what; because thats my home, our home. We are facing an enemy, an enemy that wants us dead. That doesn't accept our existence nor compromise for peace. An enemy that has sworn to destroy us by any means necessary. Instead of making a fuss and showing the world that we have differences, we have to unite. We have to be thankful to the State of Israel, that is currently doing anything to protect every Jewish soul in the world, even the ones who despise Israel. The only thing I can do for Yoram Kaniuk, is feeling sorry for not understanding these facts...
