    I like Jordan's analysis of the problems facing Israel although I don't agree fully with what he had to say. First of all Israel is not France, Italy, Greece or the UK who have all developed from tribal and regional societies into nation states. Israel is a collection of emigrants often with very little in common. Israel was also created at the expense of another nation; the Palestinian Arabs who continue to dispute its the legitimacy and are higly unlikely to accept its creation as a fait acompli. Almost 60 years on, Israel?s existence as a state is still largely considered a mistake to say the least. While others interpret it as nothing less than a sin and an aberration. To Israel's disadvantage, its enemies are many and determined to fight on despite many set backs. Israel can be described as both a success story and an out right failure. The merits of its existence will continue to be debated for as long as it survives.
