Most Israelis are complacent. That is the only way to explain the rise of the Netanyahu-Lieberman-Ultra Orthodox coalition. That also explains the power the settlers have in influencing the intransigience of Israeli leadership seeking peace with justice. Current leadership in Israel is focused on coddling settlers and their excesses. Someplace along the way many Jewish Israelis have lost their commitment to truth, justice and commitment to help those least able to help themselves. Einstein foresaw this calamity developing from the narrow nationalism that might come from a Jewish state, and it has happened.
