Anonymous, what was the point of leaving that asinine, rude, one-word comment? Grow up and get a life.

Lisa, there are too many people out there filled with jealousy and hate... Hopefully, they will learn that that is not the way to a peaceful life...

Oh well.... Cheers Anonymous to your miserable existence!

enjoy pp.
When it comes to anonymous.., I am not aware of what he wrote but its very telling that the very same people that get mad watching pp enjoying life..., probably support the ones who blow themselves as female martyrs.
Is this islamic ? No way.

"Do not kill yourselves, for Allah is compassionate towards you. Whoever does so, in transgression and wrongfully, We shall roast in a fire, and that is an easy matter for Allah."

So.., many that one might thought would be more islamic since they support the martyrs atitude..,actually are in great error.

palestinian princess~what is your take on the two recent kidnapping of israelis, one not far from your hometown?

To the above poster... Im sure a lot of you have read my blog already know what I am going to say but here goes:

Well, what the US and Israel has labeled a terrorist organization is the "movement" for freedom for some Palestinians who do not yet understand that VIOLENCE actually isn't the way to freedom. To call people who will do ANYTHING to get freedom in actuallity is underestimating the occupation, in my opinion, so even though I don't support the way some people go about fighting for freedom, I would never call them full blown terrorists.

Ok, now to your question. I don't condone any acts of violence, even if they happen by "accident" like the poor people who were killed while picnicing on the beach in Gaza, and I also dont condone any type of kidnapping or civilian killing - from either side, killing is murder and murder is violent. Im against all violence.

But as in the case of Israel and Palestine, it is a cycle. And I think that Israel needs to make the first steps towards peace and trying to make life easier for everyone. They are the ones with the upper hand, it is definately not us.

So, until Israel starts making progress towards peace then Palestine will. How can anyone expect a powerless, ity, bity country held captive by another country to start waving the peace flag??!! Thats so funny! We are suppressed and we have forgotten what being treated like a human being is like.

I still am shocked when people say please and thank you to me here (USA, for you all the dont know I am here).

Hey Lucy, you picked quite the time to come to New York. I am hoping you are WAY upstate (Buffalo, Rochester, etc.) where they didn't get all the rain we got in the New York City area. Some places like Binghamton, New York, and some parts of New Jersey and Pennsylvania have been flooded out this week.

Hey, I grew up not far from that area (just north of Toronto). Growing up near Toronto, we'd always get Buffalo radio stations and Buffalo TV stations (and I know the reverse is true too). You're right, there are lots of things to do in that area.

Have you been to the Canadian side of the border? Toronto and Niagara Falls are both a lot of fun, especially in the summer.

PP, Israel offered peace at Camp David in 2000. Arafat never even issued a counter-offer. Face up to the fact that only if Israel woudl agree to completely leave the WB and Gaza and also agree to allow millions of Palestinian refugees move, not to a Palestinian state but to Israel itself, would your leaders ever sign a peace treaty with Israel. Israel is never going to offer such a deal because it would be suicide.
