Historical, history and hystoronics. Seems that throughout history, both recorded and oral, dilemas exist. Now what makes a dilema a dilema? It is usually associated with a situation which is not so to speak, "cut and dry". Israel is facing enemies, all these enemies have their self interests as well as a collective interest. Until these enemies state to the contrary, their collective goal is to destroy Israel. Their speech is not cryptic, they publicize their thoughts and dreams. Israel's dilema is how to face this situation. One side says be strong & hold onto the land won in victory. History shows us that states that decrease in size eventually vanish. The other side says "Peace at all costs". So the dilema is what is the cost? Israel essentially exists as a refuge for Jews, not as a shining beacon of democracy in a shadowed corner of the planet. When critics fail to realize this fact, they become drawn to illusions & often hysteronics.
