Peter, as I tried to make clear, the sending of hate posts together with the threat of annihilation will disturb a fair discussion and will harden one’s position even of those people, who would like to open their mind. They are simply forced into a defensive position. The same happens on the battlefield with far greater consequences however. And I must admit, that the existence of Israel is threatened and that Israelis have a big feeling of insecurity. I am afraid that the situation will get worse because religious fanatics have their big helping hand in this mess. This gives the conflict a new dimension.
