    As a loyal Arab leader, admiring this Newspaper already for a dozen of years, I insist in expressing my immense RESPECT for Haaretz Editorial with regard to this particularly truthful and down-to-earth article. Israeli's often claim that other people (especially Arabs!) are jealous of them, Well in this instance they are right! I am jealous of the Israeli's enjoying so much freedom of expression, in general , and in the case of Haaretz, such excellent and HONEST journalism. In my country, Tunisia, I hope that we will discover the blessings of free press now that we have got rid of our dictator... Returning to this article, I would like to expand my admiration beyond the writers to my co-chatters most of whom are Israeli. 9 out of 10 of them are astonishingly fair and full of understanding to the Palestinian suffering... Some times I wonder how such a Great People (no allusion to Great Israel of course!!) like the Jewish People (as a real Arab, I have always considered you my cousins...) can elect such a nerd as Netanyahu. To all peace-loving Jews. Arabs & Gentiles: Salam/Shalom!
