    Israel is being more than hypocritical. It wants to normalize an inherently abnormal situation. It wants normalization with the Arab peoples at a time when Palestinians are being killed, enslaved, tormented and humiliated at ubiquitous Israeli checkpoints and roadblocks. I think the writer of this article Zvi Bar'el is suffering from a certain political blindness. He fails miserably to explain that Israel wants free normalization while continuing to turn Palestinian towns and villages to evil detention camps surrounded by Jewish-only colonies and military watchtowers manned by trigger happy soldiers. That is just impossible, and no Arab or Muslim intellectual would embark on such a treacherous and treasonous track. Salem, I know him quite well, represents only himself. He is a man who has been willing to trade off his conscience and morality for fame. And as a result he has become infamous, rather than famous. Actually, he is no more of a pariah than a resppectable intellectual. Well, If Israel really wants to build bridges with the Arab wrold, there is one address: The Palestinian people. Give the Palestinians their rights, stop humiliating and tormenting them, and dismantle this satanic wall, and take all your settlers back, and then we will be more than good neighbors. We will be friends. Khalid
