As Ernst explained in his excellent post @ #15 Israel has very serious problems that go much deeper than just the occupation of Palestinian land. And they are eating away at the moral fabric of the whole state. I believe that the only solution is to move away from the concept of political Zionism and Israel as an exclusivist Jewish state. The only viable future in the long run has to be a state of all its citizens, that becomes part of the Arab world.
