Israel has created and promoted a national identity in which the concept of impunity has a fundamental and prominent place. That is to say, Israel can do no wrong, no one may criticize Israel, Israel must never apologize, Israel must never pay reparations, Israel must never be punished. Israel is righteous, and every last act of brutality and oppression is fully justifiable. When these ideas are taught in youth, and reinforced by a lifetime of repetition from every quarter, is it really any surprise that Israeli terror gangs form spontaneously to beat down the Arabs? After all, these Israelis KNOW they are righteous, they KNOW their brutality will go unpunished. They KNOW because that is what they have always been taught.
