"What I don`t understand is the hint of admiration you seem to have. Am I wrong? Would you still have admiration if a group of Islamists started to fire mortars at Big Ben or Parliament?

I have no admiration for anyone who deliberately or carelessly targets civilians, whether those doing the targetting are Arab or Israeli or anyone else. Unlike many critics of Israel on here, I have spent time in Israel and enjoyed it. I think a secular Israel that, while having a strong Jewish element also fully embraced its Arab heritage could be a great place and a real bonus for the Middle East. I'm frustrated that Israel seems so unable to drop the poisoned chalice of the occupation, and seems to be drifting further towards agression, confrontation and extremism. Some of Bibi's choices for ministers are frankly a disgrace to Israel.
