Israel has to face reality, a rather disconcerting reality to diehard Zionists.: the end of Zionism. Zionism--a myth with no sustainable roots in the historical process--- cannot endure without the continued use of oppressive, illegal force associated with the brutality of the occupation. It s not Israel's existence that is a stake, but how its leaders decided it must exist that has alienated it from world opinion. No state can long survive when its existence depends chiefly on the use of military force.
