Many of you have chosen two paths to justify Israeli ethnocentricism; you either reaffirm the pariah-status of the Israeli Jew, that is the existential threat to his diasporic community, or you cite the Jabitinskian myth about the 22 Arab-Muslim countries. The problem with the former is that for it to properly justify the treatment of the Palestinians and qualify as a citizenship norm every sub-national community in the world should be purged from its host community and given a state. Clearly this is neither possible, nor morally acceptable, and yet it is the implicit conclusion of what you are saying. In regards to the "22 Arab countries," the so called West is predominantly white and Christian (more than 22 countries) would anyone see it as acceptable to say: "Sorry Poland, but there are Slavic catholics in Austria, you guys better take a hike" Absolutely not. I'm telling all of you, there is a better way than looking into the Abyss of "Nation-state."
