    I am not suggesting here the Beilin/Oslo approach or similar things, which are just 'washing hands' of the hostile populations, and on top of it doing it stupidly, believing in the 'humanity' of the already far too well established hatreds, but thinking of something similar as I went through in the former Yugoslavia being a national minority with full rights,as I am now in Canada, again a foreign born person but a citizen with full rights, where people in the majority could and would invest in me while 'not one of them' and still trust me to be what I said I will be, that is LOYAL to the ideals of theirs as long as I wished to live with them.In my younger days the situation was not too dissimilar in Yugoslavia as it is now in Israel, yet the deep desires of the people ruling to foster equality amongst all living there prevailed.I know it is much maligned nowdays through propaganda, and very unjustly for sure, but even today, apart of a very small minority,ALL LIVE IN PEACE,and equality
