As an American Jew it breaks my heart to see Israel pursue this unsustainable political course. Decades and decades of human rights affronts (if not outright violations) and iron-handed foreign policy practices under the rubric of national security will eventually force undesirable changes on this beautiful country and its beautiful people. In the end the victors write history and it is impossible to imagine modern day Israel being reflected well in the future. Most disheartening, hawkish Israeli leaders and supporters have convinced themselves that any step backward or modification from it's current aggressive course, speed and direction would be a sign of weakness and, therefore, impossible.
