Not so long ago that idiot Tom Friedman [of NYT fame]posed the question: where is the Palestinian Ghandi? A rthetorical question demonstrating complete ignorance on his part. More than terror, Israel fears peaceful opposition. All the harder to opposes with bullets and imprisonment. Better to lock the fledgling Ghandis up before they gain momentum. Such a noble state! Israel today, despite its much lauded democratic status has more in common with its despotic neighbours than it would have us believe.
