Barel is the type who calls himself an "intellectual." Jeez, reading his stuff is almost a surreal experience - no matter how many times the Palestinians say they will never agree to a Jewish state, and despite the clarity of their call for terror, Barel insists Israel is at fault. Also,this is the same weirdo who said Israel can and should get used to Kassam attacks , and that such attacks should not bear on Israel's willingness to make more concessions. Lastly, readers of Haaretz should always view Haaretz's columns against the backdrop of Jewish history - the type of mentality displayed in these columns has contributed to our tragic history.
