    Timothy, it is nice that you imagine yourself to be a kind and caring soul. But this is not the case. You so fashionably wrote, In terms of life expectancy, infant mortality, years of education, income...the Arabs and Palestinians come out way behind." Actually Israel ranks eleventh in the world for life expectancy, beaten out only by the likes of Canada, Australia, Sweden, Switzerland...etc. If the Pals are 4 points behind, then that leaves them with a life expectancy rate of 74.57. Not bad, puts them in the upper middle. Yet it does put them ahead of all Arab countries; Egypt 63.33 years, Malaysia 70.83, Sudan 56.55, Syria 68.46, West Bank 72.08! As for education, more and more Arabs are choosing higher education for their children. do not expect the numbers to equal the Jews until Arab culture crosses the "Rubicon" and allows their women the freedom needed to reach their potential. "times are a changin"
