    Give me a break, Doctor. This is not the time of Theodor Herzl and Chaim Weizmann.They used your arguments, but this was in the genesis of the experiment. Unfortunately, like many lofty sounding ideologies, Zionism did not pass the test of time. Israel, instead of becoming a Light to Nations became an anathema to world's liberals. It became a bastion of shovinism in the name of the Bible, a bastion of intolerance and outright land theft in the name of security. Not all means are sacred to reach a goal,sir. But we keep ourselves convinced that they are, because we are a poor, persecuted people whom everybody hates; even the semites become antisemites. So now we will show the world that we are determined to the point of cruelty, powerful to the point of cutting the head for a finger,the throat for a leg, skeptical of our friends to the point of spying against them. After all, It's Us against the rest of the world!
