    "my first cousins kill their sisters for being raped, but what can I do? I am the same race as the Arabs, so how can I be racist against them? I am against their inhumanity and their colonialism. " If they are your cousins, then why do you murder their children, uproot their trees, demolish their homes, and poison their sheep? If they are your cousins why don't you treat them as your equals? If they are your cousines, why don't you grant them citizenship so that you and them could live equally in one state where all citizens are treated equally regardless of religion, race or color? Well, as for the distratction about women being killed for rape, this is a lie, a big lie. It is the rapist who is killed, not the rape victim. Besides, if there are isolated cases in this regard, it is unfair to make overgeneralizations as if it was a phenomenon. Besides, why don't you direct your attention to the Israeli Jewish street..maybe you have more homosides than us...Just yesterday, a man murdered his own young wife in full view of their two children? In fact, not a day passes in Israel without a homocide. Indeed, the rampancy of crime in the Israeli society probably exceeds anything in the Palestinian society. Khalid
