    This forum is an example of many many other forums which abound in idle talk. "Jew hater" is the responce of many to valid criticizm which has nothing to do with Jew hating. "War monger" is the responce of many to Israel's action which are not understood because of the general context, the repeated statements by peace loving Arabs that the 'Right of return' is holy which are tantamount to the statement that the Jews of Israel are to be turned into a persecuted minority. "Palestinians support terror" is another response to the fact that Palestinians do not act against terror. The point that is missed is that the Palestinians are split because today there is no clear road to peace, so minorities dominate and cannot be controlled. Rather them make idle comments better think of solutions. Those exist. See: http://www.mideastweb.org/log/archives/00000619.htm
