it does not excuse Israel's present attitudes of calling anyone who dares to criticise or disagree with it "irelevent' We cannot exist in a vacuum on this planet,unlike the heads of some of our polititians,settler parties,Haredi and the like.There are 2 lots of people to consider,and semantics is really of no help.We are taking the land of others and these people have to live.They were here long before the fanatical US religious zealots on settlements and outposts.Either we become real,and have democracy not theocracy,or everyone will suffer.Hiding from justified critcism under the accusation of ant semitism is stupid and will help no-one.This is NOT what Zionism (or Jewishness) was about.I really dont feel that I as a recent citizen of Israel,can stand up and be counted when it comes to defending many of our actions and decisions at this point in time.Let us start by electing a new government without Leiberman or Netanyahu.There MUST be soome potential leaders aropund who would risk assasination in the pursuit of justice?
