    Dear Gilad from Hod Hasharon, For being able to teach ?a history lesson?, 1) you should be aware of ?the whole story? and 2) you should be willing to tell ?the whole story?, if it is known. You said: ?As Jews increased the legal purchase of land the local Arabs did not like what was happening and they began attacking Jews?. There is something missing in this equation: STEP 1: ?Jews increased the legal purchase of land? STEP 3: ?local Arabs did not like what was happening and they began attacking Jews? The key concept here is ?WHAT WAS HAPPENING?. What was happening, Gilad, inmediately after the purchase of the land? Fortunately, pioneer Epstein give us the missing link between the massive purchase of land and the Arab unrest, that is, STEP 2: the eviction of the Arabs from the land. Now that we have the whole story, Gilad, you can start talking more appropiately about the beginnning of terrorism. Just a last question for you, Gilad: What would you do if a group of european foreigners start purchasing the land of Hod Hasharon and forbidding you to work there and forcing your family to emigrate for making a living? Would you call yourself a terrorist?
