The premise of zionism is that it would restore the Jew to normalcy, to history as a player like all other players. What it has ended up doing is creating one hugh ghetto where the Jews is not any more secure. But Israel is haunted by the Holocaust. It is the indelible mark on the national psyche and the national motto engrained in every fibre of its citizens is: "Never Again"! Even when it flies in the face of reason, military strength and power is seen as the only real national salvation, not because it helped solve the dilemma but because the nation lives in the shoadow of the Holocaust and responds almost reflexively. The military victories of '67 have proven to be a great burden to the country from which they are not willing to extracate themselves. This is the tragedy of Israel.
