For all these 'profound' questions, Marcus offers not a single answer. Not that he does not know them. On the contrary, he does, but he has chosen not to bring them up. The real one and only pertinent question is- how come that after 61 years of sovereignty, achieving military and economic power, and academic and scientific milestones, Israel is still looking for political respect and freedom from criticism? How is it possible that Israel in spite of the above is still a pariah and its leaders are constantly whining about injustice and prejudice towards it? Why would a power intoxicated Goliath constantly portray itself as a David? It is not for me to answer. Marcus should write another article and minutely explain to the readers why it is so. He knows.
