what

I meant is that facts are senseless and useless at THIS point of the conflict, which goes much beyond the living conditions of Palestinians(by the way, I saw them with my own eyes)...there's already been much debate around these facts and it (almost) never led anywhere, I remember 2 years ago...I was in Jerusalem during the Camp David discussions, people were full of hope and the result was thesame as usual...now we're talking about blind fanaticism on both sides, what I mean is that the conflict has entered the realm of the irrational and here, historical "facts" lose their value...nothing can justify the attitude of so-called martyrs or the public lynchery you've probably seen as well as I did...conversely, no martyr can justify the vicious mass-destruction and extermination program followed by Israel...I'm not saying you cannot know anything, I just say that very often, people (including me) talk without the sufficient knowledge to have a more or less objective approach...and yes, I believe many things...Ed
