    based on the actions of others. A bit patronizing, but good article. Seeing your faults through other eyes is good for anyone. If Palestinians don't exist, neither do Jewish people. It is a religion and a culture, but take away the Jewish cultural virtues we have admired over the centuries, and you just have human beings who have this middle eastern or east European lineage and take people's land based on their bible. So people who see injustice call them on it. Being Jewish is not a defense, and invoking anti-semitism and the holocaust is not a defense either. Killing, oppression, lies and deceit remain indefensible. There is no two-state solution. That's what we have in Gaza, which is no solution. We need one state that is blind to differences in culture and lineage. The age of the ethnic state is over. The end of the Jewish State is imminent, but Israel will live forever as a secular democracy with equal human rights for everyone.
