Whether a Palestinians state would emerge today or not, we are "an ugly blot", a "cancerous stain" that "has to be wiped off the face of the earth". Gideon Levy's musings as well as yours just overlook that fact. I don't think Israel should strike Iran militarily. No way. Yet the abstention doesn't mean Iran will stop its stated goal to destroy our Jewish state. Even Qatar's emir knows and stated it in private. So it shouldn't be so difficult for either Mr. Levy or yourself to figure that out. For memory refreshment, read Hamas' or Hezballah's charters. Or Ahmadinejad's comments on "the Zionist entity" and his denial of the Holocaust as a "myth". There just isn't anything Israel can do rationally, diplomatically, morally, spiritually or else with Iran. Praying, I'm afraid, is as porous a thing as Iron Dome. So let's hear your sincere assessment for once.
