No one can tell us what to do. If we carry out a military operation with questionable methods, no one should challenge that. If we screw up handling a flotilla on one of whose ships are a group of men seeking martyrdom, because we are let down by our intelligence services, no one can question it. If we do in fact investigate national military calamities, we are told that officers are upset at being quizzed, and our political leaders ignore the findings of Commissions of Inquiry that provided blue prints for how to deal with the next threats. Our police shoot to kill 13 Palestinian Israeli citizens nearly 10 years ago and not one officer is charged or penalised. We are not willing to be accountable - to ourselves let alone to the outside world. And we can't cite our past and our suffering and the Shoah as justification for our unaccountability. We were once a minority during which we dreamed of being better than our oppressors and being the best our values taught us. We too easily forget being a minority and go far in the other direction and will not be queried. That's not tribal, that's the behaviour of a people abused, now become abusers - of their minorities and of themselves - and like all abusers we are in deep denial of it all. HELP!
