If Israel does not survive as a Jewish homeland it will be not only the right who are to blame but also the great swathe of Israelis who have become so politically apathetic. The Israelis I know are so determined to live a "normal" life -work, vacations abroad, possibly the expat lifestyle in the US - that they appear to be deliberately ignoring what is happening. Partly, of course, this is because they feel they can change nothing but also because so long as they can make themselves believe that their lives are like those of their counterparts elsewhere, they have achieved their personal goal. What will happen if bombs start falling on TA and its environs is another matter. But for the moment apathy reigns supreme.
