There is no flood of orange or flood of blue .. I shlep up and down, a little left and a smidgen right .. I am happy to report that the majority is a flood of neither .. that would suggest that the majority do not want a referendum. One reason is because most of us just don?t know, we can not see into the future and it?s a tough call, on one hand, you are totally correct, they have not done anything to say we can trust them .. on the other, we ain?t helped the civilians that are caught between evil and the IDF .. What we have done so far isn?t working, partly because the ?world? isn?t helping with the stupid propaganda and partly because the Palestinians just are so beeping stubborn and partly because we have protected ourselves at all costs .. no one is under the illusion that this will work either, but if you don?t try, you can not know. I appreciate your caution, please understand, we do not do this with our eyes closed. However, we do want to show willing and we will wait and see how the Palestinians react. I know exactly what we are doing and I admire us for trying, however fruitless it may prove to be. I know my life is on the line here and I am prepared to fail in order just to try .. I need to know .. I just do, for my own sanity, I need to know that I tried. I do not expect you to understand, hey my sisters live in England and one sounds just like you .. you would get on like a house on fire .. but it is just something that I am happy I do not have to be asked to make a choice on .. I just don?t know and I am happy to try .. can you understand that at all?
