experience and language skill in Hebrew and Arabic provide me with a picture of Mideast very different from that in US media. It seems to me that 90% of Americans don't care, 5% Zionist and 5% pro-Arab. The latter 10% prefers to kill the messenger rather than face the truth. As a result I've had to interrupt my life quite often to go to the region to see things for what they are. Having made many deep friendships on all sides, one fears more for people than for ideologies in Mideast. My goal continues to be a HAPPY peace for all peoples of the Mideast.
