There are 7 million Palestinians today being sacrificed to the alter of realpolitik - nobody wants to blow up the world to save them. No one doubts Israel would use nuclear weapons under any pretense. No enforcement of dozens of UN resolutions shows the world has calculated - like Kissinger did back then - those guys in Gaza and the West Bank are not worth blowing up the world over - so a few war crimes - illegal embargo - open air prison - oppression and colonial expansion, Israel can get away with it because Palestinians are not worth blowing up the world over or in this case the Middle East. It puts Kissinger's comments in proper context. Kinda ironic how blowing up the world remains with the Jews but this time history cast them differently - not needing saving from outside threats but saving from themselves? It might be a tougher nut to crack. This is how it ended before, a house divided is not good - one part free and other oppressed is not a recipe for long-term health.
