    Larry King was famous for his softball interviews, which is why celebs and politicians loved being on his show. The never had to worry that King would ask them a tough or embaressing question. So when I read this interview it sounded more like Larry King than Amira Hess. If this were a paper for a BA in journalism, you would have gotten an F. But I figured I'd help you out. Here's a few questions that you could've asked Pollack but didn't: Does your activism include demonstrating against Palestinian terrorism? Do you oppose blowing up busses and restaurants in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, etc...? What territory do you consider to be occupied (just the WB, Gaza and Golan) or do you also consider Tel Aviv and Carmiel to be occupied? In your opinion, what is the prevelant Pal view on these issues? Do you really beleive that a complete Israeli withdrawal back to the pre-67 lines would bring peace? Why does Pal terrorism pre-date '67? Are you opposed to the sepreation fence itself or just the route of the fence (i.e. where it's not on the green line)? If you oppose the barrier and not just the route, what do you make of the fact that the fence has clearly reduced the number of terror attacks in Israel? There are many more, but I figure that'll give Amira a few ideas for next time.
