I think they're both remarkable, Ali more so because Palestinians are enduring far worse daily suffering in Palestine than Israelis living in Israel or Jews living abroad. My deep empathy/allegiance with the underdog is perhaps keeping me away from believing that Robi's suffering is equal to Ali's - yes, the humanity shared in all suffering and emotions is there, but the systematic degradation of human dignity that Palestinians suffer everyday, cannot be equal to living in Israel as a Jew. Surely, how can the Palestinians be expected to rise above this without the resources such as the world's Jewry enjoy?
