Dr. Gabor Mat Speaks Out on Israel and Palestine: A Must-Watch Discussion



Self-hating? As a Christian-raised agnostic, I don't know the answer. It's true that I generally side with the underdog (in this case, the Palestinians), but maybe I'm wrong.

So no, I don't call the Palestinians in general the underdog. The video does a good job of humanizing the issues. Now if only the leadership would do that. They should of thought of that before they attacked. Their leadership doesn't care about the consequences on those over which they rule.
