    God and more importantly History will judge this lady very very harshly. Israel’s existential current threats was bought directly by this lady. The thousands of Israeli dead victims in Olso will also shriek out in vengeance. She is even worse than Moshe Dayan who gave up our heritage on the Temple mount to the Waklf.

    My family was nearly killed in a suicide bombing and Aloni in interviews brazenly stated that these murderous terrorist were justified killing women and children because Israel occupied them.

      History and God will remember this woman for her courage and moral force. Israel could have been in a better place if views such as hers were taken sooner and more seriously. Thousands of people have died and perhaps thousands more will too but Shulamit Aloni understood everything could change for the better if Israel was prepared to make life workable with dignity for all. Even though our family members were nearly killed in suicide bombings we know the bigger picture is not spouting racist venom reducing everything into us vs. them.

      Shulamit Aloni understood this too.
