Donald I can't agree more with all you say. However please beware of hasbara comments on the interent. There are hasbara agents pro Israeli's who pose as Palestinains (many are paid ) to spread misinformation and to say stupid stuff as well in order to gain Israeli sentiment. Many hasbara agents start off saying " as a Palestinain". Some will even list Arab names when posting. FYI. This agent is all over the place.
