So I am setting myself up as a moderate and talking in two directions at once. Yep, and I don't have a solution, though I would very much like to find one. Now let's look at you - a person who once claimed that no matter how we stood, all Jews had each other's backs because we all want the same thing - a strong and secure state of Israel living in peace, but we just have different ways of going about it. Looks like you are now pursuing a completely different road of slapping down anyone who does not think like you and delegitimizing them to mere actors setting themselves up and talking doublespeak. You are beginning to treat Jews who think differently from you the same way you treat the Arabs. Neither is very nice. It's not a change for the better, Peter, frankly it does not become an intelligent person such as you. But who am I to question what you think? I'm just another Israeli who's tired of the conflict. You are YOU, who has set yourself up as someone who knows better.
