    Whole generation of Israelis that grew up after Oslo had their childhood marked by bus bombing and rocket attacks. Nevertheless, those Palestinians who sent a Grad rocket into a school classroom or put an antitank shell into a school bus are considered by many, like Mr. Barenboim, to be freedom fighters. Each and every step towards “peace” led to more victims and more horror. It is obvious to all sober thinking Israelis that Palestinians are firmly bent on exterminating all Jews in Israel. Moreover, Palestinians do not conceal their intentions. Thus those few who consider IDF actions immoral should move (preferably with their children) for one year to Sderot and talk about the morality there… The worst distortion of morality is the attempt of people like Mr. Barenboim, who had never been shot at, to teach Israelis what is moral and what is not. He is not on our side. He is on the other side.
