    I was brought up to believe that humiliating another human being was a cardinal sin. My father GRS was a Zionist, who suffered in Siberia while others in his family went to their deaths in the Annexed Poland. He taught me this fundamental rule. He was an upright man. I see nothing here to fill me with pride, nothing to make me believe we are following the right path. The Palestinians lost their homes and their history and it is inappropriate and disturbing to know that my people are doing the very thing I detested when living at home in Scotland. They called it the Orange Walk where the Protestants would march through the streets of Glasgow to celebrate victory over the Catholics. Every year I would hear those drums pounding and watch the faces of the Catholics and feel their hatred grow. I don't know the answer to east Jerusalem or the Golan or the unsightly Settlements on the West bank, or the right of return but what I do know is that this kind of humiliation is unethical, confrontational and unacceptable on any Moralistic level.
