    - Buddy - You are extrapolating unreasonably. If YOU were a black in South Africas under apartheid, would YOU have been a good citizen? (Its not a rhetorical question. I'm asking you it.) As for "terrorist ideology" do you not understand that "terrorist" is a subjective word? I'm not sure why you introduce IDF soldiers into the discussion. Are you playing on some patriotism? Don't bother. A life is a life. One IDF soldiers life has exactly the value of anyone else's life. No less. No more. - Liat - Your sentiment is very good and I support it 100%. I am completely non-violent more than almost anyone. If I were a black in Apartheid South Africa (or an Arab in Gaza, or a Jew in old Poland) I would only use violence as a last resort tool. Bombing civilians is always wrong. (There are no exceptions, ever). A person who is not carrying a weapon should never die by a weapon. But... being a human, I know that under duress my values erode and adapt.
