I beg to differ with those who consider Israelis out and out racists. Sure, there are plenty of hardcore racists, particularly Talkback responders and many Israeli politicians. However, if you had six million of your people killed and were surrounded by over a billion people, many of whom hate your guts, you may opt for emigration in an opinion poll. That's a reasonable 'human' response. What's positive in this survey is that the other half of Israel's population did not suggest emigration. They are the ones who are following the best of the humanistic Hebrew traditions. And let us not forget the Ten Commandments which are the basis for the most positive aspects of Western Civilization. Unfortunately, in times of conflict, there is the all too human tendency to follow the fiercest warriors. Perhaps that's why most civilizations rise and fall.
