    recognition that we too are humane, with feelings. We hurt, we cry, when we are hurt. We reach out our hand in friendship and help and shower our love over people (ANY people indiscriminately), who are kind and friendly to us... without prejudice, too, I want to add. The world has kept denying this for well over 2000 yrs: our humaneness that is. The Israelis *are* very LOVING people. A FACT! Global hatred keeps painting a different image of us and sabotage us by turning even our private actions against us like the recentmost inauguration of Hurva synagogue showed; it has nothing to do with Arabs: Israel*s internal affair. The world approaches the Israelis through "conditions" on their friendship. YET, friendship is unconditional. There is an anecdote: "the forest echoes back the same way you speak to it". Is it really fair to reproach *only* Israel all the time and refuse to see the forest from its trees? I think not.
