To be honest, I have just discovered the Israaid website and it could not make me happier. It is not easy to hold on to the old time humanitarian traditions when one serves as a Scapegoat to the World and you need to fight the same battles over and over again. But it is never as important as during those times.

I have recently attended a private briefing with a senior Israeli diplomat with a extensive intelligence background. He was grilled about Israel's repeated hapless efforts to reach an accomodation with the Palestinians. His strategic answers left much to be desired and he knew it.

Finally he lost his temper and shouted:"It says 'Peace, Peace you shall chase!' Who are we if we don't do that?"

All I could think is, these are my people, these remain my people and wipe a secret tear.
