    Dear Sara, being a Pole I admire the Jewish as a diaspora that is so united in pursuing and defending their interests. That is an example to be followed. I myself am fond of Jews if only for the "pesky Jew" whom I consider to be divine. Of course the Israeli cannot expect to be popular with other nations for storming flotillas even though there was an ultimatum given by Israeli Government beforehand (not to enter Israeli waters). I understand the security considerations and perhaps it was an inevitable lesser evil for Israel to use force aboard rather than face more complex situation in Gaza being flooded with multiple flotillas. Let me however corect you on the role of Poland in the late 1800s. Do not put the Russians and the Poles side by side in making your argument simply because you are not fond of Eastern Europeans. At that moment of history Poland was wiped out of the map of Europe as it was partitioned between the Russian Empire, Prussia and Austria-Hungary. Do not attribute too much hatred to any nationality simply to justify and support your point. Poles might not have liked the Jewish minority (which is the fate of any minorities anywhere anytime) but even if Poles wanted the Jews out of Poland, they could not have had any say on it as they struggled themselves to preserve their identity. It is well-worthy noticing finally that the sympathy for the Jews nowadays stemms mainly from conviction of a common cultural-religious heritage as well as concerns about intensifying progressive islamism. One can see, there is still much to do on either side of the M.East conflict if the two states (Israel and Palestine) are to exist separately. So take your time. Israel, I wish you well. Shalom

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin, February 16, 2016.

If Merkel also criticizes Israel, life is not a piece of cremeschnitte

The Israeli reaction to Der Spiegel's report on the German chancellor's frustration with Netanyahu was ridiculous, even Orwellian; as if Israelis were aliens who had just landed from another planet.
