    At least you agree that most of the public would "accept" the attitude of Miss. Tartman about the Israel reality. She did'nt propose any policy that would change the nature of the democracy. What the people that you say were acquiscing to her pronouncements, it is only as far as that particular episode. It is your right, though you are not living at the moment in the Land of Israel to take part of the debate, to ask the public hopefully with intelligent and reasonable arguments what the situation should be, at this conjecture when they feel that they are not getting any quiproco reaction from the Arab MKs. Here is the context within which your thinking has to try and find a way out. I di hope I made the point: you do have the right to criticise but you also have to criticise within the psychological contex, of the place and the time.
