It's comforting to believe that we make our own problems because then all we have to do is go into therapy and come out cured. Unfortunately sometimes problems cannot be cured by a change of atitude because they are real. Maybe Israel's problem is not a crisis of its own making but one produced by the problems of the people who seek to destroy it. Maybe a 62nd birthday is not the time to long for the illusions of youth but for the wisdom of maturity.
