You have 125 followers. I know HS girls who have ten times that. But you do have the Monitor and its reputation. Your moral equivalence shows you know nothing about Israel and Palestinians. The Hamas Charter calls for the destruction of Israel. The two state solution, until recently, was conventional wisdom in Israeli politics. If you studied just the Wall Street Journal and some other serious publications you would know that the kidnapping of the three teenagers was not the result of anger and rage in the West Bank. It was done by a clan of provocateurs whose stock in trade is forcing Hamas toward violence and away from any reconciliation or even a semblance of peace. The Unity Government government was too much for them. So they pulled a terrorist act that would draw repression on the masses. This is a political stunt so old that it is taught the first day in anti-terrorist classes. And Hamas, afraid to be called soft on Israel, refused to condemn the kidnapping even though they knew which clan did it and why. That is called a Profile In Cowardice. And now a small clan has got exactly what they wanted. A cycle of violence. Hamas and other groups in Gaza will launch rockets from schools, hospitals, mosques and houses and then parade the dead when the site is hit by the IDF. Then they bring out the professional wailers. Facial character recognition technology has established that the same women appear over and over again to wail and cry and moan about the dead. They are good at it. They get paid for it. The Western press eats it up. Take a look at the Monitors photo database and you will see that it is the same women. The are right out of central casting. People who really are mourning do not hold up the dead body of a son or daughter and pose for photographers. That is not how people in Arab culture or any culture grieve. They are too heartbroken to pose endlessly for cameras and and make a public spectacle. The same with the family of the suicide bombers. Before the security wall cut out that round of murders of people on buses, in pizza parlors, ice cream parlors and city streets, the family of the bomber would get paid cash by the PLO or foreign Arab terrorists. Really, profiting by sending a kid to blow himself up and kill others! Moral equivalence my ass. So your numbers are meaningless. I am sure you have never visited with an Arab family in their home in East Jerusalem. You probably don't have any Arab friends. But you sure are good at math. As the old saying goes, "Figures do not lie but liars sure can figure." You are not a liar, you a young, immature idealist who happens to have a spot at one of the most respected newspapers in the world. You are just wrong. I dare you to respond to me. You won't. Cowards never do. To steal a line from Tom Cruise, You can't stand the truth. So, no stage name, screen name or whatever. Let's see if you are man enough to respond. But with 125 followers, you are an ant if you did not have your job at the Monitor.
