Although I support each person's right to believe what they want with  
respect to Israeli domestic policy, and to act on those beliefs in  
whatever lawful manner they feel is appropriate, I don't think we want  
to encourage GnuPG to take a political position on this issue.  I  
think getting tangled up in politics -- especially politics that has  
nothing to do with privacy rights -- would ultimately be a bad thing  
for GnuPG.
