Netanyahu and every other Israeli PM has caved into U.S. demands, beginning with Begin. Because the U.S., until recently, was resistant to the knee-jerk hatred of anything Jewish or Zionist (unlike Europe), its ultimately pro-Arab intentions remained veiled. Now the veil has fallen. Israel offered peace vs. war. But its options have only ever been death in despair or death in dignity. The world intends to dismantle Israel, but, first, it feels compelled to justify the dirty dead. Israel must hold up a mirror in which the world will see its own ugly face. It may not stop the crime, but at least the world will be forced to look at what it has done.
