    Im a 4th Generation Cdn Jew, I have heard of Gilad before, chalking him up as another Chomsky, Finklestien etc. - a Jew who finds much greater success in hating Jews/Israel. Gilad lives in a dream world. He states "he is against the existance of a Jewish State". Does he know what it was like for Jews prior to a Jewish state? Just today, In Canada, a leading paper had a story how it was not till the 1960's till Cdn Jews found acceptance. Jews have been escaping being Jewish for 2000 years, the Jewish state ended this, gave Jews all over the world a present and a future. This future, the future of the Jewish people, allowed us Jews, In Canada and elsewhere to be accepted, to lift our heads up, and be proud - not running any more, not escaping. I tear my clothes to you Gilad, and I say the morners kaddish....
