    It's quite sad that the leaders of Israel have to praise a dictator for stating a fact that 99% of the sane human beings on this planet acknowledge and accept - Israel's right to exist. It's also sad that those who seek to deny Israel's right to exist somehow fail to realize that millions of lives, including those of their loved ones, have been saved by the dozens of inventions Israel has made in medical technology that have had a direct impact on saving millions of lives. The next time those who hate Israel and deny its existence turn on their computers or speak on their cellphones they can also thank Israel for the inventions billions use every day, and the next time they communicate via AIM, ICQ, or use Google, or Windows NT, Vista, or XP they can thank Israel once again. Those who hate Israel forget that Israel sent its medical teams to assist Turkey after the horrible earthquake and Israel sent dozens of doctors and nurses to help Haiti after the earthquake that took the lives of more than 200,000 people. Strange, but the same people that deny Israel's right to exist sat by and did nothing to help the citizens of Turkey and Haiti in their time of need. I guess they exhausted all their efforts in hating Israel so they could not help others who were suffering and dying.
