    Dear Maikey, I am not sure you know how open the Israeli society is, because you're too busy with your own bubble... I don't blame you for it, however, I do disagree with you on some points: Taking an example of something good and putting it in a dark light is an unfair and ugly thing to do. Israel has a lot to learn, but taking that liberal Israeli spirit and showing it to the world as a hypocritical act is just wrong... The gay community in Israel still fights for its rights, but there are still many ways to make things happen. Israel is a wonderful place to live for gay people. Mind you, it is an Israeli stage you're using to express yourself. How many Middle-eastern countries would give you such opportunity? would you be able to get one in Gaza or in Ramallah? I seriously doubt it. Stop butchering the Israeli liberalism, which you enjoy and take advantage of. Michael
