    Hi Grant,

    I am sorry, but I can 't agree on this ! This is something completely out
    of context !
    The bias where upon the Jews and the Palestinians now have to live their
    lives are NOT, and I repeat NOT of their own choosing !
    The state of Israel was indicted in 1948 by others, not the Jews neither
    the Palestinians were involved in the proces.
    Saying otherwise is being not intellectual honest !

    OTOH, you were correct saying that the US is resorting the same kind
    of effects, and within the context of such a knowing how is it then possible
    that you write what you wrote !?
    You have giving here the ultimate proof that the US, and all others I
    suppose, is/ are stuck in the way of their thinking and handling.
    And knowing that, what is holding you back to change all that, or is
    that then a typical affect of the American way of life, keeping the pro-
    blems in space, so that you can ' act ' in an American way !?
    Is that the bias of that ' great ' nation !? Pathetic...

    No offence intented,
