    I am South African, born and bred, and a patriot…I am so ashamed of the stance my government has taken on the conflict. If Israel ever needs men for the line…well you have my e-mail. Israel is the one country in the world that I have the most respect for…Not only have they made the desert bloom and developed a very civil, free and enterprising society…they have done all this surrounded by a far more numerous foe.

    It astounds me when people I know, indeed friends?, openly side with the Palestinian terrorists. I apologise for their ignorance.
