    Why feel contemptuous towards Israel & Israelis after spending 12yrs here & finding you couldn't make it here, for whatever reason. Are you trying to justify your action? We accept the fact that it's not easy here, in fact it's tough. But we love it here. I came here as an 18yr old idealist, originally a Kibbutz member, spent 18 unhappy years in britain from 76-94 & today the only difference is I am now a 63yrs 'young' Idealist & wouldn't change it for anything. We feel no contempt for anyone who couldn't make it & returned to the country of his birth. All we ask is the same courtesy Ya'akov.

Senator Bernie Sanders
Bernie Sanders is smart to keep his mouth shut about Israel

The U.S. presidential candidate has the Democratic progressive vote in his pocket and is wise not to reveal that, on the Middle East, he stands more to the right than his fans would like him to.
