    "I like Jordan`s analysis of the problems facing Israel although I don`t agree fully with what he had to say" Thanks. Actually, i think you may have misunderstood me, and that we do agree. Lets have a look. "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." Absolutely. "Israel was also created at the expense of another nation" Also true, but not unique. The English had to conquer the Welsh, Scottish, and Irish. Most of the New World was colonized at the expense, in some form or another, of its earlier inhabitants. "..Israels existence as a state is still largely considered a mistake..While others interpret it as nothing less than a sin and an aberration. To Israel`s disadvantage, its enemies are..determined to fight on despite many set backs..Israel can be described as both a success story and an out right failure." Agreed.
