Yes I am soft :)

Japanese writer Haruki Murakami who won an award from an isreali organization.

"Between a high, solid wall and an egg that breaks against it, I will always stand on the side of the egg."

Yes, no matter how right the wall may be and how wrong the egg, I will stand with the egg. Someone else will have to decide what is right and what is wrong; perhaps time or history will decide. If there were a novelist who, for whatever reason, wrote works standing with the wall, of what value would such works be

Of course the high solid wall is Isreal and the smashed egg is the people in gaza. Most of them born into oppression. That would suck and I would fight, as would you. But what is an egg to do?
