    To see what we have become just look at the reception received by the Arab Israeli legislator in the Knesset the other day when it was made known that she participated in the protest flotilla. It exposed the true feelings of our current lawgivers to the world. These people do not represent me and many millions of Jews like me. I don't like Hamas, but attempts have to be made to control the situation. Separation merely gives the other side the abiltity to attack the other, and Israel will never agree to one nation, what with the population difference. So, it appears that we are doomed to fight forever. Perhaps that is our punishment, to win but never to totally possess Israel. What a shame. A good friend just visited and remarked how beautiful many of the sites were that she saw. My only comment was, you should have seen them before we all began to destroy them. She just looked at me and then she understood.
