In reply to comment: Well judging by the article (see in situ)

I'm sure there was a backlash in Israel . . .

because there are some very conscientious people there who are as displeased with their government leaders as *we* are with ours.

But there wouldn't have been a backlash here in America--

otherwise, I agree with the two previous posters (including dutk0004); it is very important not to collectivize.

There are insensitive people everywhere; maybe the parents have that particular kind of Aspergers that doesn't pick up on social cues--

(seriously)

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--
