    I would like to believe her words provoked Israeli's in a way that made them think more about the current state of affairs. I know better, the reflex response is routine in it's timely predictability. She is a leftist and therefore, her wisdom at 93 will be put to waste. It should be noted, having lived the full circle life, she is the embodiment of how the future state - call it what you will - will be. It won't be a "Jewish state" or Muslim state or a Christian state. It will be a state of it's people, of different religions and ethnic make up. Oh wait a minute - we have that today, don't we? Of course we do, it's just today one religious groups wants to play the role of supreme leader and the rest should take a back seat. That will change and yes, Zionism's role will be over. The kool-aid well will run dry. Good riddance!
