    In the first breath you repeat what the world sees as propaganda: You said:Iran keeps calling for Israel's destruction, No it doesn't. The Iranians have said, read a correct translation, that the Zionist entity will pass from the pages of history... never mentioned Israel and never mentioned Jews. Much of the world and no doubt many Israelis and Jews would also like the zionist entity to pass from the pages of history. You said: Hezbollah is armed to the teeth with rockets, and it has shown that it is willing to use them against Israel's population centers. Only because Israel has attacked Lebanon twice. Of course they have armed themsleves and they used them on Israel after Israel attacked them first. You said: Hamas rules Gaza, No, Hamas is imprisoned in Gaza by Israel but it is the democratically elected government of the Palestinian people. You said: and its official position is that it will never accept Israel's existence. No it isn't. This is a blatant Israeli lie. Hamas says it wants the occupation to end, for Israel to stop colonising Palestine and for Isreal to negotiate final borders for itself. What Hamas sensibly refuses to recognise is any Israeli or Jewish right to Palestine. That has to be negotiated. You said: So why doesn't the world understand us? Because you tell so many lies and you refuse to see the reality of Israel's foundation and what it does as a colonial enterprise imposed upon Palestine in 1948 and an ongoing occupation and colonisation which is not only immoral and illegal but is unjust and uncivilized. In reality the world does understand you which is why boycotts and sanctions are growing and the ratings on Haaretz pages are against what Israel is and does. You don't understand yourself and the lies and propaganda in which you are immersed.
