Good point -- there is no easy good vs. evil here

Reader comment on item: Christians Disappearing From Iraq
in response to reader comment: Christians disappearing from Jerusalem

Saul makes a good point. Israel's policy of ... keeping its Arabs (of all religions) in ghettos and walling them in ... is based not on racism and bogey stories (as was the Nazis), but rather racism backed up by real terrorist stories -- the oppressed Arabs and Moslems truly are making nasty, violent, terrorist attacks on the Jews who are keeping them in the ghettos. So it is a messy situation where everyone is to blame, and nothing is one-sided. The oppressed Moslems in the Israeli-run ... camps are not pure victims, but are victims embedded with nasty terrorist scum. The real world is complicated like that -- not evil vs. good like silly US feel-good movies.
