    When I was last in Israel a year and a half ago, I remember eating in a lovely, clean, "Arab" Israeli (Palestinian) whatever terms, restaurant. The food was absolutely delicious, the waiters and waitresses so friendly and accomodating. In fact, they seemed a lot more polite and warm than Jewish Israelis who always seem to be in a rush, so intense. The Arab Israelis I've met were so much more relaxed, fun, and very friendly. The ones that cause terror and violence, I will not blame on being Arab or Palestinian, just on being evil. That's the problem in our world, not what race a person is. Look at the Americans who have linked up with al quaida. Race has nothing to do with what people are in their hearts. Also, it would be better if Ariel Sharon could speak for himself. I admire his courage, and what he has done to help protect Israel, even though it may seem a little extreme, as the saying goes, "he did what he had to do."
