Miriam, don't listen to the anti-semitism rantings of David Teich. I have the highest regard for Jews and what Jews have give the world. If I didn't care about Jews, I wouldn't be interested in Israel. I support Israel's right to safety within its 1967 borders and I think it's an absolute tragedy and one of history's bleakest jokes that a people who have suffered as much as the Jews have ended up keeping an entire other people in captivity for 40 years. Whatever the reasons and excuses, you must know that's not right. It also affects more than just Israel, because it is helping destabilise the entire world by stoking up conflict between the West and Islam. Sure, there are other reasons, but Palestine is still the first and biggest reason.
