Israel certainly does have many loyal letter writers eager to do what they can to empower Israel. Some are compassionate and even kind about Palestinians- others not so much. Time will tell what will be, but I for one very much hope that Palestine can survive the many challenges ahead as it figures out how to become a real nation state inspiring justice, peace and progress in the Middle East.

"Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home - so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of the world. Yet they are the world of the individual person; the neighborhood he lives in; the school or college he attends; the factory, farm, or office where he works. Such are the places where every man, woman, and child seeks equal justice, equal opportunity, equal dignity without discrimination. Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere. Without concerted citizen action to uphold them close to home, we shall look in vain for progress in the larger world." Eleanor Roosevelt
