Like Sharon, Olmert and others, Arens admits implicitly that the success of zionist political goals comes with a very substantial price tag. That price tag includes maintaining the jews forever in the role of morally bankrupt and uncivilized oppressors, who value their luxuries over the dignity and basic human rights of their neighbours. Israel has been paying that price tag for many years now. I think Arens can see that his people's humantarian reserves are badly depleted. Israel, although rich with US tax dollars and powerful with US weaponry, is bankrupt in human terms and in need of emergency aid. Arens can see that.
