       I've have had 6 doctors of Muslim faith and I will tell you that all of them have nothing but genuine interest in my health and often ask how my family is doing. Their bedside manner is far more personal and warm than the white American doctors.

    Regarding peace between Israel and its neighbors, perhaps Golda Meir said it best:  "We will only have peace with the Arabs when they love their children more than they hate us."  She was Prime Minister of Israel.  (The U.S.A. still hasn't had a female president.)

    Ayaan Hirsi Ali said the Koran forbids a Jewish state, because it forbids Jews and Christians be treated as equals.  [All others are infidels, of course, worthy of conversion or execution.]

    These, and the warrior culture of two eyes for an eye, etc., among the Arabs, who value their pride and ego over life, to the point of murdering female relatives for presumed un-chaste behavior, have a lot to do with the Arab-Israeli Conflict.

    And so does propaganda, like that which changed the name of this issue to the Israeli-Palestinian War.  We can thank Arafat for that.  His uncle, the former Mufti of Jerusalem, was very close with Hitler, though, so it isn't surprising.

    If you want a more modern view from people living there, check out Corey Gil-Shuster's videos on YouTube.  He receives questions from viewers and takes those questions, one by one, to the streets, to ask real and random people.  Though it's not a scientific survey, it is enlightening in many ways.
