Absolutely Not

1. Realise how much of the technology we use comes from Israel.

2. Compare the way Israelis treat their non-Jewish citizens (allowing
them to attend our Universities, use our health system) with the way non-
Muslims are treated in Arab countries before you decide Israel is guilty.

3. Israelis don't train their youth to blow themselves up and kill as
many as possible in the name of religion.
