Don't boycott Israel

Like two roosters trapped in a cock fight, Israel and the Arabs are
co-equal
victims in a world that is motivated by conflict, gore, and profit, rather
than
cooperation, health, and peace. Let's stop blaming the victims, and let's
put
the blame where it belongs: the failure of the world's academics and
physicians to solve man's problems and change man's mindset.
