Fiorangela,Thanks for your remarks. In this site you are one of my
prreefred commentators although as usual there must be lots of areas our
thoughts might differ drastically since, as I understand, we have been
brought up in drastically different habitats.I’ll try to read the books
you discuss in your remarks. They sound interesting since I know I don’t
know deeply enough about everything related to our species, wars, origins
of wars, arms dealers, propaganda etc. I alway wonder why human being live
like insane beings unnecessarily creating so much misery for themselves and
for others while there are simpler ways for avoiding suffering for all and
living this short passing life in a more peaceful and pleasing environment
.On the subject of books:If I am asked to recommend only two books on the
subject we often discuss about I’ll name the following:1- By way of
Deception by Victor Ostrovsky (a Mossad defector)2- Profits of war by Ari
Ben Menashe (a defecting? Ex-Israeli government officer)
