For most of the last 1000 years the Israelis comprised a persecuted minority in most countries. The challenges facing such a minority group are entirely different to those facing the rulers of a large country trying to defend their borders. Anyway talking about this probably doesn't matter. Neither side is prepared to back down in the near future, things are only going to get worse. -- http://www.coker.com.au/bonnie++/ Bonnie++ hard drive benchmark http://www.coker.com.au/postal/ Postal SMTP/POP benchmark http://www.coker.com.au/projects.html Projects I am working on http://www.coker.com.au/~russell/ My home page - ISN is currently hosted by Attrition.org To unsubscribe email majordomoat_private with 'unsubscribe isn' in the BODY of the mail.
