    ...the destruction of Israel, we wouldn't see people like Bishara who seeks the destruction of a state being compared to Herzl, even by sympathetic journalists. After all, Herzl never wished to destroy a state, but to build one. There was no notion of harming another group, which Bishara has espoused when he went to Syria and supported Hizbullah or when he openly supported Palestinian aggression against Israelis. Whereas Herzl was about building up, Bishara is about tearing down. Let's face it, having yet another Arab state where Jews are again a minority in yet another country will not help the world one bit. It's not as if the existing Arab states have provided beacons of light with their human rights, economies, technological innovations, governance or judiciaries, media outlets, etc. What is so grand about a man who wishes to tear down the identity of the only mid-East state to achieve this progress so that we can get what we see happening already in Gaza?

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
