    In my humble opinion, the time has already arrived when the international community should resolve to return Israel to the pre-1967 borders, and enforce this while allowing a Palestinian state to form. I also do not subscribe to the argument that Israel must control more of the West Bank and Jerusalem "because it is surrounded by hostile neighbours" - making Israel larger would not alleviate that! Israel will always be surrounded by non-Israeli states, whether Palestinian, Jordanian, Egyptian regardless of its size, and presumably Israelis will live right up to Israeli borders and will always be within range of any hypothetical attack. And by treating its neighbours with contempt, as Israel has shown in its actions to Lebanon, Syria, and Palestinians, Israel incites hostility from its neighbours - the Israeli prophecy of being being the brunt of hostility is self-perpetuated. Further, the fact that Israel can form peace arrangements with some surrounding neighbours, vis a vis Egypt and Jordan, also negates the argument that Israel must have more territory for its security. Peaceful relations and mutual respect are the best means to security - exactly what the Israeli government has not been doing for some years now.

Israel's angry, bitter left must reclaim the language of hope

We leftists whine and complain, we only talk about how bleak and hopeless life is in Israel. We alienate all those Israelis whose support we need to bring political change.
