    Everyone around the world is supposed to understand Israel's viewpoint. The vast majority which is now getting increasingly aware absolutely disagrees with it according to Israel "just doesn't get it". I may not get it too but I can still relate to it. I am from Pakistan and I have seen how the "twisted logic" developed by mere rhetoric can brainwash so many on a widely varying scale and can say with cent percent confidence that in this regard Israel is not different from Pakistan. Both believe the world is out to get them. Both believe in treating minorities and in Israel's case the rightful owners of the land of Palestine with contempt, disdain and condescension. Israel is just a lot more educated than Pakistan but this just goes on to show one grim fact: Education does little to budge your mindless adherence to any ideology. Because education as in Pakistan, and I'm sure in Israel too, is based much on glorification of the past and little on the fundamentals of logic and most pertinent learning to think for yourself by questioning even the most well-entrenched of assumptions. While we (Pakistan) were hijacked by a wave of extremism generated that seems to be subsiding with time, Israel's very existence is to ensure the safety of a religious group. So it will inherently always be a fascist state.
