    I live in Israel. I am a responsible citizen. I am an artist with an MS in Communication. Your reaction seems to me to be verging on the hysterical.
    The situation is not black and white. Not all Palestinians are bad people. Not all Israelis are angels, and bad, bad things have happened on both sides.
    If we want to find peace and a good future for our children and grandchildren, we must look for the good in others–it is there, and we would hope they can see it in us. We need a base of trust to build a future together.
    No, I’m not a bleeding heart liberal. Pretty liberal, I hope, but certainly believe in Israel: I’ve proved it with my major life decision. My children have served more than their required time in the army.
    I have brought them up not to be haters, and I think this is the most important human — and Jewish — attitude in this complex world.

    I am not a Jew but you do not need to be Jewish to know what anti-Semitism is, whatever its costume that day. I think this article is bringing up several crucial points. The most important thing for me is to stay alert. I won’t let myself believe the nonsense I used to believe when I was 23. When some bundle of clowns associated with BDS shows up in town, I know what they are all about.
