Sorry Lakshmi, Given the history of the last hundred years your calling Israel a pariah state automatically deprives you of the right to be considered seriously on this forum. I certainly don't agree with the posters who think that blasting India (or Australia for that matter) is a legitimate part of this discussion. But as long as you believe that namecalling is equivalent to debate you are about on a level with Marilyn, Dutch, Indrajaya at his worst or Stephen Murray. I believe that the reason there has been no peace is that both sides have VERY real issues to contend with, both internal and external. Both have good reason to fear and distrust the other. Many of the posters on this forum are far too shrill to add anything to the conversation. Somehow I expect more from you. I don't know why.
