Here is a link to my friend Dina Kraft's article on the Gaza doctor -- a colleague of many Israelis -- who lost three daughters when a tank shell hit his house. Message to the e-mailers on my right: Yes, you're correct, I sympathize with this man, and yes, I'm aware he's not a Zionist. And to the e-mailers on the left: I know you find it hard to believe, but many Jews don't actually like to watch Palestinians being slaughtered.
