    I fully agree with your last paragraph. Zionism holds an answer for the Jews of the world...but your view is myopic. Just because it is good for Jews it does not mean it is good for everyone. The Palestinians also know that Israel is good for the Jews but in the meantime they are being occupied, humiliated and mistreated and those who stayed in Israel are treated like second class citizens. I know that they should have accepted the partition, but the "great" Arab states around them deluded them. As for now, they are victims of their own past but also of Jews who don't see them as neighbors with a rich cultural tradition but as smug that needs to be swept out. So they live up to this expectation and make as much damage as possible to slow down the sweeping out. Arens has no capability to look at both sides of the story. He is the superman, the only righteous one on earth, who wants to solve everything by force of arms. His solutions did not lead and will not lead anywhere.

'Let's drop the illusion, settler leader Dani Dayan won't serve as envoy to Brazil'
