    ... all Palestinians and all Arabs are angels then you are free to believe that.  A program like the one highlighted in this diary will make you feel better about yourself, but it will serve no other purpose than to be propaganda.  A program like this will not serve the peace process or assist an audience in fully understanding the issues involved in moving towards peace.

    As you said earlier there are TWO sides to this story.  You also said that Israel has a right to exist.  If a state has a right to exist, it has a right to defend itself.  Claiming to "build bridges" while ignoring those facts is the true non sequitur.

      does not apply to occupations. Whether the occupied are angels or not is beside the point. Israel has no right to Palestinian land and have never for a moment stopped dispossessing Palestinians. This doesn't seem to bother you at all. There is no peace program, never was. The Israelis themselves admit to this "placing the peace process in "formeldehyde." they want what they have always wanted from the very beginning, as much of another people's land without the people as they can steal. I suspect you already know this, so why pretend? If, by chance, you are unaware of this history, i suggest you read Ben- Gurion and earlier Zionists who do not pretend otherwise.
