When Israel connect, it is as though it is in a higher dimension. And like looking upon a flat lander opponent when you are 3D -- you see a whole new side of approach that is defenseless -- the inside. Diplomacy and military action may be needs of the moments, but they will never penetrate that inner gut anti-Semitism. But a unified Israel can get to that inside and turn it inside out.
