Perception of pariah status has already been achieved and is picking up momentum. It is like an iceberg melting. First it starts slowly then the momentum increases to the point where it happens faster and faster. The heart felt empathy "legitimacy" that paved the way for Jews to go to the Middle East after World War II has and is deteriorated by the apartheid that is being used on the Palestinians. Quoting or relying on the Balfour agreement or the UN resolution does not provide legitimacy. History is replete with actions, judgments, accords, etc. that were or were made to seem legitimate at the time yet over time were viewed to be quite the opposite. My suggestion is to look at seeking to make peace at all costs and attempting to live in the Middle East on common ground with those whom you have victimized and been victimized by - the Palestinians. I know this will sound Utopian and foolish to many, but it has worked in America, South Africa, and in other nations.
