To the Zealots, Kahanists and other defenders of the Land of Israel, rather than the State of Israel: Your opinions, expressing our age-old Jewish trait of: 'See, we told you, this would happen'-type self-righteousness is disturbing. Rather than patting ourselves on the shoulders, saying: "Look how organized and responsible we are and how uncivilised they are " and then drawing the conclusion that 'there's no partner for peace, thank goodness, now at least we're not responsible', we should express regret that this anarchy is harming Israel aswell. On the contrary, your opinions fuel the opinion that probably all the Arabs have and which is also strong and getting stronger in Europe, that the Israeli's are bloodthirsty people who passionatly hope that the Palestinian state will never be. In their eyes, this makes us exactly the same as what we Israelis hold the Palestinians to be. This does serious damage to our image and the support we get from the world.
