    The memory hole: Criticise but...not now please. Allow the State to do its job [house demolitions, clampdowns on peaceful anti wall protests, some tidying up, ie. ethnic cleansing in E Jerusalem and bits and bobs in the West Bank, some more blitzkriegs in Gaza or Lebanon as deemed essential due to existential dilemnas] then criticise by all means...when it's too late to do anything about any of it! Cute huh? Then to reiterate, don't criticise while we're in an "existential war for gods sake" and believe me Israel has been in an existential war since its inception and will plausibly be so until eternity...but patience is a virtue, so be patient you headstrong fellow! The doublethink: Destructive versus constructive criticism. Ah yes, please please, lace your criticism[if you really must criticise] with nice anecdotes and platitudes thus engulfing the very criticisms you make so making them more palatable to those of us who prefer not to hear them at all. After all we don't all have either your penchant for introspection or justice. OK? Then remember our sages, as Rabbi Yaacov Perin eulogized at the funeral of Baruch Goldstein, , "One million Arabs are not worth a Jewish fingernail." So to summarise, just be more like us, gloss over the faults Bradley, sanitize them for our sensitive ears and remember the wise words of Rabbi Yaacov Perin. I simply ask you, follow these precepts and fear not the wrath of your fellow Zionists. Indeed we will all laud you with the finest epithets reserved for our greatest heroes and icons. There's a good boy ...pat pat.
