And all this time I thought Epaminondas was a guy able to think outside the box and turn the opponent's conventional strength into a liability. Over half of all Jews don't live in Israel. Why? It is not hard to portray Israel as a bit of a self-made Ghetto as it is to portray it as a natural homeland. One of the more curious developments of the last three decades is the belief in Israel that it must treat the world with contempt instead of seeking acceptance as one of the world's great nations. Your 'chip on the shoulder' attitude is not necessarily healthy. Had the real Epaminondas been so determined to ignore reality he never would have prevailed over the Spartans and freed the helots.
