    Perhaps difficult at times to see past the convoluted self confirming layers of hasbara, the veil is of late wearing particularly thin. Eventually of course it will dissipate completely and the claim of democracy will be seen for what it is, a cheap and tacky confidence trick being perpetrated upon the world at the expense of the Palestinians. Enraged at their gullibility the backlash around the world will likely be swingeing and punitive and perhaps deservedly so. Can the Israelis change course, doubtful. Recidivistic tendencies twist beyond recognition the psyche of those afflicted. The truism of 'there are none as blind as those who will not see' will be the inscription on the headstone of both 'Gush Emunim' and the fascist nature of the state of Israel, no matter what that fascism is dressed as at the time.
