Israeli patriotism is identified with expanding borders rather than with the desire for Jewish and democratic borders??? A ridiculous statement if I have ever heard one. Today it is becoming more and more apparent that most Israelis now understand that the dream of Greater Eretz Yisrael is no longer feasible, and that territorial concessions are going to have to be made. We believe that a smaller Israel with security and peace is far better than a larger Israel at perpetual war. A larger Israel at the expense of peace with our neighbors will give us more territory, but it will take away what we hoped to achieve here on November 29th, 1947: a homeland for the Jews. Instead we will be left with a fortress for the Jews, and a dangerous one at that, bereft of values aside from the worship of military might and survival among surrounding enemies. A greater Israel bereft of values is far more a threat to Israel than the 1967 borders after we have attained peace with her neighbors.
