Thanks Gidon for this article. Its extremely frustrating to see how the North American Jewish community often blindly supports Israel. While their intentions may be noble, the result of their efforts are often destructive to their own goals. Why is it so hard to see that administering a civilian population is not in Israel's best interest? Not only does it create more hatred on those being administered but it is also detrimental to the young Israeli soldiers who need to fulfill the terrible and unnecessary task. I know how terrible this is for Israel's future and moral integrity having seen the ugliness of israel's occupation during my three years in the army. Those who truly care about Israel should strive for Israel's quick exit from the West Bank.
