    "Now, I know that I would be defined by Burton as a member of the leftist, liberal clan, but my question is this:" You separated yourself from the "tribe" when your aliyah failed, you left Israel and moved to New York. Your only "tribal connection" to Israel now is annoying posts to Ha'aretz, buddy. "does anyone else, from any of the various Israeli clans, upon reading these statements regarding the pain of the settlers (which I accept as a statement of fact)ask themselves about the pain that must have been felt by the palestinian refugees in 1948 who were driven from their homes without regret or kid gloves and who were never, unlike these newly arrived Gazans, compensated for their property. Empathy. Where is it?" Yes, I feel tremendous pain for them. Tremendous pain that their leadership was so blind that it linked up with the Nazis during WWII. Tremendous pain that the Palestinians and Arabs opted for a war of attempted genocide in '48 instead of a U.N. resolution for two states. Tremendous pain that the PA and rich Arabs let the refugees rot like dogs while Suha Arafat lives off of hundreds of millions in Paris with stolen money. It is all very tragic, Yaakov. What is your thought on the 1 percent of the population of Jewish Israel that was murdered in the war of 48? Or your thought on a group of people who would attack the nation of the Jews on Yom Kippur?
