    Where is the Palestinian Amira? Where is the voice of those thankful to Israeli Amira, (who describe her as one of the few sane voices and voices of truth), calling for the Palestinian Amira to step forward, join pens and equally debunk falsehood and myth, expose lie and corruption, and denounce dictatorship and the politics of devastation? For lack of such Palestinian Amira, and until and if such ever shows up, why can't the Israeli Amira possibly make shift for two, if only once in a while, and bring alternatively both sides before their colossal responsibilities to their peoples? Or is it too much to hope? I m not writing this to dismiss what she says. I am just saying that it's a job only half-done. That is why it bears inadequate credentials.
