I'm an Israeli who has served in the IDF as does my son now. I am sad to say that I completely understand the reasoning that compels Ms. Walker to take this moral stand. It is upon us to make right what we can on our side rather than spend time and energy justifying our actions. We are here we aren't going anywhere. Most of us have no where else to go and remember collectively what it was like when there was no state of Israel. When good people like Alice Walker are calling us on the carpet. Maybe it's time we complained less and listened more.
