    I visited Israel after the 1st intifada but before the 2nd intifada. At that time the Palestinians' life was so much better than after Oct 2000. There were literally hundreds and hundreds of tourists arriving each week. Nightlife in both Israel and the Palestininian West Bank was booming. There were clubs and there were casinos. The Old Shuk was teeming with people and the cash flowed. I am not saying it was a paradise for the Pals but in a way it was. Then Sept 2000 Ariel Sharon - with the approval of the Waf- visited the Temple Mount and the people went beserk. Israel is a free country and if the Prime Minister wants to visit the Temple mount at a Jewish holiday time...he is allowed. Rather than vocally complaining, as usual for the Moslems they rioted...and the result was loss of life. If they want to commermorate Oct 2000 let them....but they should not blame the IDF.

Israel's angry, bitter left must reclaim the language of hope

We leftists whine and complain, we only talk about how bleak and hopeless life is in Israel. We alienate all those Israelis whose support we need to bring political change.
