    A Democracy-- Is supposed to be about having, encouraging & promulgating (promoting the existence of it in its best form for the future)...rights, rights of the individual, rights AT THEIR HIGHEST FORM, rights one has as a human on Earth from birth. Is supposed to be about establishing the rule of law...AT ITS HIGHEST FORM. Is also supposed to be the separation & distinction from barbarism, totalitarianism/dictatorship & theocracy. Israel-- Is clearly NOT this: the Palestinians, other Arab countries (recently Lebanon)...not even with its own citizens. While Israel Is One Of The Most Egregious Examples-- It UNFORTUNATELY...is not alone: My country has Bush & his Administration pushing back human/civil rights, international law & conventions...as though they were never meant to be (warrantless wiretapping, citizens held without trial, Guantanamo, etc). People Say-- You want us to have that? We-- Are letting people down. IT'S TIME to change this!!!
