    Are you telling me all the stories I have read over the years of Palestinian Christians being persecuted by Palestinian Muslims are all just propaganda? Is it true that the Palestinian man who said he converted to Christianity and had his very life threatened by his own family and other Palestinian Muslims was just lying? I don't believe that.I have watched quite a few church services in Israel on television,so I can't believe there is no religious freedom at all like you said. If Christians in Saudi Arabia or Iran did that they would be arrested and possibly killed. My Christian friend who I talk to sometimes on the internet lives in Israel. She told me she worships freely,so I don't understand why you can't. As far as the security wall,I am very sorry it causes hardship and inconviences to you and other Arabs,but the fact is if your people had stopped supporting the mass murder of Israeli civilians years ago in buses,cafes,and schools it would not have been necessary to build in the first place.In March of 2002,170 Israelis were killed in suicide bombings and other acts of terrorism this March no Israelis were killed largely because of the wall.Somethings are more important than lands being cut off to farmers and children being a little late to school in the morning.A man who lost his entire family to a Palestinian gunman,and spoke about the need for the security fence,had it right when he said "our right to live take precedence over their ability to get back and forth to work on time".I think it is important that the security fence is completed and that Israelis and Palestinians are seperated for at least a few generations before there can be any hope for true reconcillation.
