    to a certain ignorance on the subject matter because everyone seems to be an "expert" on this one.  I can and will admit that I am not an expert.  I am learning, or at least willing to try.  Let's just say that the more I learn about the arab/israeli conflict, the more I realize that I know very little.  I read a great diary (I think by MeteroBlade, if I am not wrong) who mentioned where all of his vast knowledge on the subject had come from.  He had read an incredible amount of literature on the subject written by experts from all sides.  And even he didn't suggest that he was an expert.  If he isn't an expert, then I am totally uneducated, and should say it openly instead of proposing to be proficient.

    Not saying that ignorance and emotion isn't a bad mix... it probably is, it just happens to be where I am at right now.  (Hopefully not for long.)
