Happy New Year to you too, Mr. Banjerjee.

I raised several important points that you chose not to respond to, but rather try to divert attention from these issues that trouble us all by magnifying and emphasizing internal problems in Israel. I find it rather amusing that in your (seemingly mild) attempts to bash Israel and Judaism, your agenda is clearly to try to raise awareness of just how awful and doomed Israel and her citizens are.

What is truly sad is that you fail to examine your own culture, the issues in India, and the horrific human rights, women's rights, gay rights, children's rights in the Muslim world across all Muslim controlled countries. You stoop to pointing out a recent issue between Israeli citizens who are dealing with their differenes in a democratic and free society.

Barbaric acts in Israel, really? Do you really want to compare and contrast barbarism in democratic and free Israel with what exists in your neck of the woods? As for my opinion (if you really wanted to know and not simply agitate), I respect both sides and their right to discourse.

Try applying some of that feigned indignation to your own society and your own backyard.
