Dr. Sternhell, I agree with most of what you said, but there is a clear majority of Israelis who support the Clinton parameters which call for the establishment of a Palestinian state on nearly all the West Bank. I think this backwardness of the Israeli society can be atributed to the fact that it has never known peace. Nonetheless, for a country that has always been at war, Israel remains quite liberal. Don't forget that we have a supreme court which is completely independent from the political power and which has also protected minorities more than once, even when it were unpopular. This is something even countries like the UK don't really have.
