it's a pleasure to know of you...and to read your commentary... no matter what the outcome of the settler issue and the occupation; an inherent wisdom and understanding of human nature is reflected in these observations of yours to which all should pay heed. it IS a cancer of which you speak... one of indifference and the loss of humanity...and of conscience; the most threatening of all... because time is unforgiving... it allows no second chances... there IS no going back! not to undo what has been done... nor to silence the ghosts that will return haunt. or to remove a stigma. life is a series of windows of opportunity which open and close throughout its course with each there is something to be seized which is gone forever once it has closed "choices"... for some we're glad... for others we're sad... there'll be some that soothe and yet others we'll rue... but none more than for denying conscience... nor the stigma and the label that it gives us... for having even once lost it...
