    For someone espousing a philosophy (Zionism) created in, and still stuck in, the nineteenth century, built on virulent racism (dispossessing the Palestinians of their homes and fields), that in less than 40 years (1968-2008) has managed to fall from a position of being regarded by the rest of the world with starry-eyed wonder to absolute cynicism, your rant is a bit rich. The only hope of survival Zionism ever had any was by destroying the nation's past and presenting it in a totally false light, hence the need to 'integrate': the ultimate Rainbow Nation. Judaism doesn't need that. We have unique and vibrant past, and as a result we have a future, the Sefardim their way and the Ashkenazim their way. The only pity is that the Sefardim bought into the Zionist myth for too long and didn't realise soon enough that their hope lies only in separate identity.
