    "That`s why I think that what drives you is pure antisemitism(or philosemitism)." Actually you're right. I am a philosemite. I've travelled a lot in the Middle East, both Arab countries and Israel. I like the area. More to the point, because I've always mixed with Jews in the Uk and had Jewish friends, I feel a connection to the place. I also hate war and extremism and I see Israel drifting towards both. I like the Israel of Dana International, not the Israel of Lieberman. Now if that affection comes out usually as criticism, that's because I see far too many people on this site only here to defend Israel against all and any criticism. There are many nice things I could say about Israel but really it's more impportant to try to get the Israel-can-do-no-wrong crowd to see where their attitude is taking Israel. I don't really want to be in a position of I-told-you-so in 5 years' time. I;d far rather see Israel change now.
