I sometimes feel I am the only one in my town, county, or neighborhood who sympathizes with the Palestinians. I have studied Israel's history and it is ugly--one retaliatory massacre of Palestinians after another. Anti-Israel opinions regarding the creation of a two-state solution are rarely, if ever, seen in most newspapers. There seems to be a fear of Zionist reaction and punishment. Therefore there is no regular debate on Israel/Palestine. How refreshing to encounter Haaretz in the very nation of suppression occasionally promoting the cause of Palestinian independence and freedom. Is this a miracle or what?
