[NetBehaviour] Thoughts on Israel/Palestine

if only if only cease fire. i HATE Net* for his bigotry, misplaced sense 
of war and retaliation; he brings shame to every Jewish person I know as 
if we're held responsible. and I would be held as such if I could and stop 
immediately everything and - and this could go on and on and on. we are 
NOT doing well here as you may know, with my highschool friend the recent 
victim of a mass murderer (her grandson), and another friend hospitalized 
after a severe bicycle accident, not to mention the usual mayhem in Prov. 
which is on the increase, along with anti-semitic incidents. it makes it 
hard to get up in the morning. Netanyahoo has set the whole planet back 
decades... i'll play sarangi this evening...
