    Because it's completely one sided. Shragai, you were given a platform here why did you not follow the wise son (ha'chacham)? Rather, you appear to have gone down the path of the wicked (rasha) or dull son (tam). Yes the handling of the protesters might have been a bit heavy handed on the part of Police & Zahal, but they have been provoked. If you wish to gain sympathy for the extremists cause at least be fare. You made no mention whatsoever of the right wing extremists violence towards Police, Army & civilian population with physical attacks on our security forces, blocking of major highways bodily & with burning tyres (great for the environment too) chainlocking of schools & ganei yeladim. Not to mention the planting of fake bombs! If they did not send young children out to do their dirty work then those 'minors' would not have been arrested. Even members of the security forces have limits as to how much they can be provoked & "Oy Va Voy" to those who cross the red line. To Ben Israel I would like to say that I think you are wrong in your assumption. The majority of ISRAELI'S do NOT oppose the returning of Israeli citizens to Medinat Yisrael On the contrary, as was stated in the Declaration of Indepedendence "Our Gates are open for the return of all Jews..." etc,etc. It is the religious right who oppose legitimising referenda as then we could hold a referendum on seperating politics from religion which would reduce the power of the Rabbanut & put an end to them dictating "Who is a JEW" But that they don't want, no they get upset when the courts make a decision on conversion yet they interfere in political decision by not voting with their heads but rather on "orders" from a Rabbi. Just another example of wanting it both ways. THe same one sided approach of Shragai. In conclusion what hat do you pull your figures out of? And when did your Oslo war break out. More right wing propoganda!
