"Well, first of all, I have been following the conflict for decades now closely, unlike anyone in Toronto who`s Israeli born, especially being a woman as well." Unlike anyone? Wow. That IS a distinction. "my father was involved with the political party Mapam" Are we talking about the same Mapam that worshipped Stalin? No, impossible! "I believe a perspective of compromise, empathy and reason, is a must by all Israelis and Diaspora Jews." I empathize with Hezbollah, as I empathize with the poor girl called Regan in "the Exorcist" who was possessed by a demon. The only difference is Hassan Nasrallah is pining for the murder of Israelis, and he must be put down.
