26. to be fair LeftishBrit has made it quite clear that she opposes the current Israeli actions in the
Gaza. She has made that clear in any number of post.

As an unabashed pro-Palestinian supporter, I don't share many of LeftishBrits views on this conflict or her over-all analysis. But I have no reason to doubt her sincerity in opposing the current Israeli actions in the Gaza or her belief in the two-state solution.

If peace finally does come and the Palestinians do achieve self-determination and some measure of justice - it will only come and can only come with the support of a number of people who consider themselves pro-Israeli as well as those such as yourself and myself who consider themselves pro-Palestinian.
