    I can't believe most of the postings here - one was justifying everything by blaming the "terrorist" relavtives of Samar!,- does he have any?!??, and if your cousin committed murder would you be responsible and blamed???? Truth is none of us would like to live this way and none of us do, would we not scream tooth and nail if it was us?? It is not right that you can't drive 15 minutes away from your home, or visit your nearby realatives for a holiday. All Israelis have that privelege. And blaming terrorism, well, the realities here are difficult and real but there are decent normal Arab Israelis and Palestinians that just want a normal life, that crave peace too. Have we forgotten that or dare we not believe it? It is easier to think in black and white.
