That says 'if you have two Jews, you have three arguments." It is also true that Israel has ALWAYS been plagued by the inconsistencies and competing desires ANY society will have. But Mr. Levy has illuminated just how extreme the inconsistencies, and contrary policies and actions of Israel have become. The knee-jerk responses, especially from the rabid-right, are strong evidence of the validity of his observations. Israel for some time has been just ploughing along on a course long lost and towards a goal few can see. A nation which had a yearly debate of whether Syria or Egypt will attack this year, has become a nation which debates who it will attack this year. The absence of major threat has created an obsession with minor threats. The nation pours it's wealth into Settlements which the majority see little use for, or actually oppose. This might be either pathological, or more likely, just inertia in a society which is paralyzed. Paralysis is not healthy.
