    I grew up in the 50s and was taught Hebrew along with the Jewish/Zionist narrative. Back then, putting those two identities side by side was a foregone conclusion. I learned of the Palestinians' side on my own much later and now have a few close Arab friends. My father may he rest in peace used to say "it doesn't matter what people think, it only matters what Israel does". I agreed with him and miss him greatly. I miss what was supposed to be our Jewish state. Israel today bears little resemblance to the nation I grew up believing in. The present government doesn't even want peace and the Ultra Orthodox, want to drag us back to the middle ages just like the Mullahs. If the polls I have read about that say a majority of Israelis want peace and a two state solution what is the hold-up? It was reported in the New York Times last week that the population of "Greater Israel" was more than one half non Jewish. The facts must be faced. Jews who think Apartheid is an option are kidding themselves that they are morally clean. Talk about not Kosher.
