    ivar, imagine you get an inheritance - a house. once it belonged to your father. now it belongs to you, legally transfered. you are happy because just now you lost your old house following a disaster. now you have a new place to live. you work hard to renovate the house, you make everything nice there and you think that finally, after the disaster, life becomes good again. however, then it turns out that your neighbours dont like you for the reason that you are an estonian, one who is not of their nationality. they create wrong accusations, they claim you?ve stolen the house, they state that they themselves have the right to live in this house. you try to speak to them, to argue with them. however, they dont listen to you. and eventually they start attacking you not only by words but also by actions. and the attacks increase and get more and more dangerous. your life is even threatened. and not only your life but also the life of your wife and of your children. so, what do you do? you dont have any other place to go. your talk doesnt help. would you allow your neighbours to go on fighting you and your family until you are dead? or would you defend yourself?
