I agree that the Israel of today is not the same as it was 30 years ago but then neither is Britain the same as it was then too. In some ways the more extremist elements that we see today in Israel are a symptom of the frustration of those 30 years of peace not having being achieved and the many years of suicide bombings. These things tend to harden peoples opinions.
