    what this text wants to say?
    Using negotiations as a cover to create "facts on the ground", designed to pre-empt and prejudice their final outcome, has become a time-honoured tradition in Israel.

    Re: answer as soon as possible!

    Aram, this is not a comment on your English question, but a gentle suggestion on using this and other forums.

    Please consider phrasing your questions a little differently.

    Use the issue as the title of your thread: "Neck deep" instead of the less useful titles like "Help" or "Vocabulary."

    Your questions are demands, and not very polites ones at that.

    "Answer this quickly!" is a rather rude way of saying "I'd appreciate it if someone could answer this - I need an answer quickly. Thank you."

    "Please" and "thank you" go a long way toward getting better help.

    Just a suggestion.

    Hi to all
    and...
    I have to say I'm not good in english, I mean I am beginner and my english is not very good.
    you know, I dont have gone (or I have not gone! which one is true? I'm not sure) to english class so many times, just one term and a half. I'm learning english on my own (is it a true sentence!? I'm not sure again)
    so I did not know these good terms you mentioned. you know one, learn these by speaking and trying more...
    I thinked I can use this site for learning. but it seems I have made all users sad
    however I'm so sorry and apologize for my comments which were impolitely
    bye

    Re: answer as soon as possible!

    Not sad - and your apology is welcome and accepted - but imperative demands like "Do this now it is urgent" mean that people feel that a demand is being made rather than a request for help. We are not blaming you, and will give you all the help you need, but the little addition of Please and response of Thank you do go a long way to encourage us.

    I admire anyone who sets out to learn a new language on their own, and I am sure others feel the same way.

    Keep posting. Someone will always answer.

    nb >>"I have not gone to //I have not attended many classes"

    HI Aram,

    It's "I have not gone."

    I'm happy you didn't become upset over my post. Keep asking questions and keep learning!
