I hope that you are right, but I fear that the collision with the wall of reality will destroy Israel, because nuclear weapons are proliferating and Israel is small and uniquely vulnerable. Human nature is puzzling. How can the Jews, after what they have been through as a people, persecute the Palestinians? Liberals of the world, conscious of the holocaust, would love to support Israel , but your politicians, intimidated by small groups of extremists, make it impossible for them. Thousands more settlement dwellings in Palestine approved for the new year? How shocking. Support for Israel is fading on a daily basis and sadly, it's self-inflicted.
