    "...the kids being raised to love death ..." Efox. Guess to whom belongs the legendary phrase "Tov lamut be'ad artzeinu" ("good to die for our country"). Guess what is the underlying message of the Masada legend engraved in the brains of early generations of Zionist youth. If you had any idea of how the modern nationalisms recycled the religious narratives and causes throughout the Western nations-state makings and wars, you would know how rudimental and imitative is this process in the Palestinian insurgence. Your "Fifth "destroyed home" in Four days" passage would be perhaps evocative of the lowest-probe holocaust denial, if it only had a bit of the intellectual ambition of the lattest. Evocative it is by the inverse proportion between moral and intellectual integrity. How true was Gellner about provincialism of some North Americans, how true.
