i believe that you are dead wrong when you state that the last thing the jews need is a civil war. israel never determined what kind of nation and society it was going to become. you can't have a hybrid of democracy and fascism, secularism and theocracy, western and medieval, militant and peace loving. israel is the most schizophrenic, split pesonality society in the world and such a society can't be functional. just like the civil war in the us was needed to keep us from having a slave owning, medieval leaning society, the israelis, who have failed to find their identity through their political system which is flawed and coprrupted beyong redemption, need a civil war to decide who they actually are:are they closer to the eu and the us(before bush) or to iran?
