The author of this article voices out an opinion coming from an emotional response. The Jewish State is founded on principles that return us to Zionism. Can you separate our Biblical Towns from our History and Identity? No. It is what gives us the same meaningful experience to live in Tel Aviv and Moshav Meishar. But agreed, the way Israel has dealt with the population that populated those areas now under Palestinian control has been abominable. We took away their identity in 1967 by taking away their Jordanian passports and not issuing them Israeli passports. What significance did this have? We left them without any kind of governing structure that would ensure civility. The patriarchal society died along time ago and modern technology invited a new organization of minds. Now the situation is so complicated. It will take pockets of people to recreate the relations that once existed on the borderless green line of the late 1960's. It will take a lot of effort in the local mass media, both within Israel and the West Bank to try to bring people together. Maybe it's good that Jews live among Arabs at this time...maybe it's good that the Arabs will find work and contact with the Jews living among them? Slowly, slowly...and it will take a long time to recreate good will...but it is possible. Not everyone is interested in conflict. By avoiding contact with those living in the West Bank...Jews included, you won't create co-existence this way.
