While watching breakfast television on channel 2 this morning I got a lump in my throat when I heard about a 3-year-old ( Jewish ) girl who died during a routine eye operation, and saw the father of a 7-year-old ( Arab ) girl who received the other girl's heart thank the poor dead girl's parents. Just a simple human interest story on Israeli television. I hate to mention the fact that one girl is Jewish and the other Arab, but in today's reality here I am afraid that it is relevant and important to point it out. If things were managed more by 'ordinary' people, according to 'our' interests and on a person-to-person basis, we somehow would get along fine, at least that is what I want to believe.
