(continuation of last email to Amiram Barkat) If Yehoshua did care about Israel's non-Jewish citizens, he would not speak about them--again dismissively and/or in terms of derangement--the way he does (see his interview with Ari Shavit (A Nation that knows no Bounds, 3/19/04). No, I think Yehoshua is a faithful representation of the Israeli know it all, which is mirrored by the American Jewish know it all. One can only be silent in their company--or leave them to the voices they like to hear most: their own.
