I have a complex relationship with israel. On the one hand, I am on the barricades, enraged at the wilful strangling of palestinian life that builds up so much hatred and future destruction, that kills, that maims and that sucks away any possibility of hope for a better life, the only thing that can ever bring peace. On the other hand, I come from a jewish background, strongly supportive of the state, have worked in the country, and have both friends and relatives there who are part of what in many ways is a wonderful society. What to do?

The purpose of this page is to answer that question.
