    For precisely the reasons that Mr Burstyn outlined. Were Israel a more humane society less publicly, self-gloriously intent upon effectively recreating and "improving" upon South African-style apartheid, the world would be less unsympathetic. Many of us are old enough to remember 1967, if not 1945; many more of our parents' generation are old enough to have helped liberate the camps, and to have told stories of what they saw there. Very, very few people oppose the idea, the ideal of an Israel. But very, very few people truly support the actions of the reality of Israel. A little humility, a little humanity, would go a long way. But many of us have given up on ever seeing it; certainly on seeing it in 2014. It's a battle for hearts and minds, again. And Israel is not merely losing, but proving over and over again that it lacks any idea of what it would take to win. THAT is the true tragedy.
