One: I don't deny the problems, I just put them in perspective (there's 
also pollution and crime). Two: the reasons people voted W are not quite 
so simple as your analyses suggests.

Even if this were the case, I'm not interested in judging people. I try 
just to think about what makes people act and think the way they do. I 
respect your folks, but that doesn't mean I agree with you. You are 
desperate to deny any mistake at one side and give no credit whatsoever 
to the other, like you're dealing with robots.

Sure Arafat screwed up, but that's no excuse for Netanyahu.
