    so tell me, to which year do YOU think israel compares today? 1933 maybe? a little later perhaps? certainly not yet kristallnacht...but that point is looming. remember how i said it worked, cipora...by little increments in succession...each one dismissable in itself...but which cumulatively build towards a full scale nightmare which becomes inescapable by the time realization comes? so now the same analogy, without being specifically stated, is starting to be recognized by political commentors, intellectuals, diaspora jews, and even some israelis...and YOU are still in denial of what is taking place. you cipora, who are always ready to condemn the people who once fell under the same spell which now bewitches you. then what, cipora? when all the increments have coalesced, and the movement reaches full maturity and begins to implement its goals...will you join it for ideology? for survival? or will you quietly exist and hope it doesn't notice you...or worse. don't just open your eyes, cipora, open your mind so that they can see...because it's happening all around you - one increment here, two there, and gaining momentum with time.
