    I think that it is ridiculous to think that Israel could become delegitimized in anyway shape or form. It is the same as saying that Judaism is irrelevant, it would be the same as tearing many of the most relevant pages from our history, which in fact only makes what would remain an incomprehensible lie. No one can deny the legitimacy of Israel no individual or institution will ever be able to achieve anything remotely close to delegitamization and to suggest something like that is complete and utter ignorance, a mere self absorbed fantasy about one?s own delusional importance. However I find it astounding that any plain thinking intelligent and educated person would even give a moment?s credence to any suggestion of something like this. It makes me wonder if there is a creeping culture of paranoia or post traumatic stress affecting the psyches? of those who are making decisions in Israel. The road to peace is symbolically called a road map because it is a pathway to where we all wish to be. By giving things like the suggestion of delegitimization any consideration at all, indicates a willingness to go off that road for any whim or whiff of something that doesn?t warrant consideration, let alone stopping the ultimate goal of peace which will destroy that kind of suggestion ever rising up its head again.
