    The big issue that psychologically prevents many Israelis from yielding is that "Israel" has more than one meaning to the mind. If you say "should we 'give' the 'land of Israel' (eretz israel) to the Palestinians? People will say no. If you say "should we give 'Israel' (the body of the Jews) to Palestinians? People will say no. But that is not the debate. early Zionists combined concepts, in order to garner support. That maneuver has come home to roost. If Israel (any definition) wants peace, Israel needs a vigorous, cut-throat debate about what they are defending. Continuing to deliberately confuse Zionism with Judaism is not far from having catastrophic consequences. Make it clear to Israelis that the state of Israel is a temporary political entity. But stop making it clear by denigrating Judaism. Zionism is about to take a hit. Do it yourself before it gets done to you.
