This is your chance to voice your opinion. We've chosen a controversial / interesting entry that appeared on our site (talkback, blog, etc...) and we want to know what you have to say about it. TODAY'S HOT POTATO: Taken from article: Two wounded in rocket attacks Talkback #: 5 + 10 Talkbacker: Iddo of Shenkin Street, Israel and Anon Amos, Israel Text: Iddo: [The farmer who was wounded by Palestinian fire] shouldn't have been farming there. After all, Israel is a post-modern country and we no longer need people pretending to be Halutzim. Now either you make your money in high tech or finance or there is no place for you. Cheap labor we can always get from Arabs or Romanians. Come to think of it, I don't even know why anyone even lives near the border; there is plenty of room here in the greater Tel Aviv area, where we also have great discos and night clubs. Anon Amos: If its not satire that you write, your Tel Aviv is a 21st century elitist dump. Still a ghetto, I hasten to add. You forgot the Thais, Blacks, Russians and Olim etc. that you can enslave in your hi-tech metropolis. Broaden your horizon son and don't be such an idiot Iddo. I hope that rocks your discotech.
