...im sure more than a few bright Europeans are aware of this irony. But - once again - none of this changes reality. If Israel is committed to remaining a 'Jewmocracy' (just as France is committed to remaining , when push comes to shove, a Frakocracy, or Italy an Italocracy, etc)... no matter how legitimate that wish may be ... it will be forced to continue instiuting racism and engaging in unilateralism. The blatancy of that need could be tempered by a withdrawal from the West Bank, but the withdrawal itself would fraught with danger for which the state is not even remotely prepared (lack of water security is one example here). Unfortunately, the comparisons to apartheid, as well as Ahamdinejad's analysis (minus his deluded Holocaust denial) are pretty much dead-on. This doesnt mean Jews are more racist than Greeks, Americans, or the Japanese. But it does mean we stand out as an unpleasant reminder to the world of the inherent racism of the nation-state construct.
