In reference to your comments about Israeli society, I feel compelled to rebut Ianus' critical stance (and he tends to be critical of everyone to the nth degree to the point where one wonders what it is he does actually support).. I would like to comment about the very unique makeup of Israelis vis a vis their location in the ME, yet containing a heaping dose of western cultural and moral influences.

That is why it is unique in the world, IMO and a fascinating place to visit.
