    The original inventor of the great dialectic - it seems only one side of it exits for the Right. Collective selfishness and blind patriotism have never brought greatness to any nation or people. Such people also have no prophets. And in the end their shortsightedness leads to disaster. You didn't want the PLO? Now you have Hamas. You don't like Arabs in the Knesset today? Would you prefer Israel turn into Lebanon? I remember traveling through Arab villages in the Galil in the 1980s. No one called themselves Palestinian. They called themselves Arab Israelis and voted for Hadash and the Progressive List for Peace and shouted slogans like "Ahva Yehudit Aravit!" . Some even voted Mapam, and Labor and there were even a few who voted for the Likud! And you rejected Hadash and Mati Peled and Muhammed Meari, and vilified an entire sector of the Israeli public. Now you have Balad and Islamists inside Israel. Nice work.
