    Thankyou Moshe Arens for putting the finger on a sore that Israel will have to heal or it will never live at peace with itself. Watching the electin process from the safety of Canada,listening to the mouthings of one such as Avigdor Lieberman and seeing the accusing NGO fingers pointed at Israel for how it treats Palestinians, to get, in effect, an affirmation of of what seems to be a common bigotry toward Israel's Arab citizens from one such as Moshe Arens, doesn't make me feel happy. The dismissal of the Arab by Jews living in cities like Toronto is an affirmation that the virus of hate spreads easily. Do I expect Jews to be different than other people? Moderately -- especially if they remember the discrimination against them in the USSR and throughout European and North American history. To mix a metaphor. Hate is a heady drink -- but the hangover is generally bloody. Thankyou Moshe Arens for touching on the problem -- albeit gently. Gerry Kane
