    Ronnie, I agree with you. However the key here is to remember the past and learn from it but stop dwelling in the mistakes of the past talk about real solutions to the facts on the ground today. I was raised In Turkey in 1950 from Spanish Sephardic background. I migrated to USA in 1980. I did not learn to hate the Spanish who had expelled us. I learned to appreciate their culture from my parents. My parents and grandparents were subject to a racial tax law in Turkey in 1941 all their properties were taken away from them up to the furniture and kitchen utensils. And yet here in the USA I have been a strong and active supporter of modern Turkey. Some of my relatives were deported from Rhodes to Auschwitz where they perished and yet my family does not have any hate towards the Germans anymore. I have relatives in Israel who face suicide attacks everyday. And yet I do not hate Arabs. Because I know that if I keep on dwelling on these grievances towards the Spanish, Germans, Turks and Arabs who have done wrong to my family I would spend my life very bitter. Instead I use my energy to reconcile even in the worst of the situation. I wonder if Arabs can do the same.
