Dear Gideon Levy, Israeli indifference towards their Palestinian people doesn't even reflect the first article of the Declaration of Human Rights: "All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in the spirit of brotherhood" Where is the born free and equal in dignity and rights when one looks at the occupation? Where is the sense of reason when Israelis refuse to talk and negotiate with their neighbors and take unilateral steps? Aren't Israelis the ones being unreasonable? Where is the sense of conscience when one considers how Israelis allowed their soldiers to demolish Palestinian homes;uproot them from their land; and keep them behind checkpoints while they drive in the fast lane? Many Palestinians can't get to their fields, jobs, markets, schools, clinics & hospitals.Doesn't this bother them? What about the soldiers too, why don't they say, wait a minute how could this be right blocking neighbors and keeping them con fined. Service isn't all about serving, people need to question orders and their government's policies. They aren't always right... Last week, members of the 10F when out and attacked and killed 40 Palestinians in Gaza with their 21st century warfare. Now. how could they call them "terrorists" when they were just defending their own land? Don't they know Israeli settlers are illegal in the territories? How can they ever show a spirit of brotherhood behind a wall and checkpoints and treating the occupation like the Israeli bra that promises the wearer: It's there but you feel it not? Thanks, Dutch
