    If after 45 years of occupation and 64 years of anti-Arab propaganda in schools, media and politics you cannot change the peoples view on the situation, how do you expect them to accept even more intellectual 'thoughtful' models? Strenger makes the mistake of closing himself of from public thought by starting intellectual debates, hidden in academic institutes, using wise and difficult words and brilliant monologues. Fact is that if you want things to change you must want to be in power. Don´t talk with academics, but talk with the factoy workers, the middle class, etc. Find yourself a new, charismatic leader who knows how to play people, freighten them by telling them what future has in store if Israel continues to occupy and oppress Palestine, use all the demagogics in the book. In short: play the same (dirty) politics as the right wing nationalists do. Changing things is by means of power, not academic talk.
