    I cannot remember China, Iran or Russia bragging about their “Democracy” and being “a villa in the (Muslim) jungle”. This bragging and the knowledge about so many things that are fundamentally wrong in your country, is for the outside world getting more and more indigestible. The actions taken by the U.S.A. I condemn strongly, but I should not have to remember you that the Israel-Palestinian conflict started already in 1948 and an option to a two-state solution arrived in 1967. An opportunity ignored and in many ways undermined and now maybe impossible? Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen. Winston Churchill Isn’t it high time to sit down and listen, especially to people from the academic world like Professor Hawking?!
