Israel is who it elects and the policies those elected legislate and execute. Certainly Israel is not a monolith, a nation of rabid racists. There are thousands who deplore the policies of Sharon, Shamir. Eldad and Landau. There were thousands in Tel Aviv who demonstrated against the massacre in Sabra and Shatilla, there were thousands who demonstrated against the murder of Yitzhak Rabin by a religious fanatic, there were thousands protesting when another religious fanatic murdered Emil Gruenzweig back in 1983 or 84. There are many now who protest policies of the Israel government in the occupied territories. But we have Sharon. We had Barak. These are the elected leaders and regardless of those in Israel who oppose their policies of expansionism and duplicity, they are the ones elected by the Israeli population. Under Barak and unquestionably under Sharon, Israel, not individual Israelis, have said nothing to the Palestinians that does not entail an attitude which says: "you will take what we are willing to give you and you better believe this is your last opportunity" And Israel drones on about the impossibility of accepting back the refugess from 1948-49 and 1967 yet demands of the palestinians that they damn well better accept every Russian with a Jewish grandparent who wants an apartment in Ramle or Lod that no Arab could buy.
