You know, when I was in Amman with my husband and his family, I somehow missed all this, tsetsefly. Maybe if I could have actually gone into Israel I would have developed a different opinion? I couldn't. They wouldn't let my husband in. His parents left in '48, and they couldn't go back even to see the place. I had to go the mountaintop, Nebo, to see what could be seen from there. Kinda felt like Moses. Couldn't cross the Jordan. I really enjoyed my time in Jordan, though. I'm not really sure what horrible conditions you think I should have experienced there.
