    The ISM belongs in the second group, not the third. I doubt they will be winning any Noble Prizes, as long as there is some sanity left in the world." How sad to see people like you are so misguided and paranoid. To suggest that ISMers, many of whom are Jews, are concerned about "Jewish" independence (whatever that means) and self determination is typical of the kind of zionist propaganda that has put Israel into its current mess. Many Jewish Israeli peace activists (including the 32 who were arrested today in Hebron) are probably equally motivated by their love for Israel and by their compassion for Israel's victims in the Occupied territory. These, the very best of Jews, care deeply about the human rights abuses denied the Palestinian people, but they are also deeply committed to the survival of Israel, either as a Jewish state or a democratic state. Huwaida and Adam are certainly "Noble" and will most likely someday be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, but their goal is peace not prizes. They are beautiful people who I'm sure would be very polite to you.
