As a French-Canadian and a christian, I find the article of Akiva Eldar extremely heartwarming, very compassionate, enlightening and full of common sense. We, outside of the Middle East need more articles like this, from both Israel and hopefully other parts of the Middle East too, to remind us that there are a lot of people in Israel who care about more than just "their own". Thank you for the beautiful article, Akiva. You are clearly a very fine human being. Hopefully the Arab journalists and public will read your article and start to write similar articles expressing compassion for the Israelis as well. At any rate, you have done your part and enlightened the rest of us in the process. I'm sure I'm speaking for many who read your article. Best wishes from Canada... Martin P.
