In Australia we have two different groups of Jewish people who probably illustrate this conundrum rather well. We have ultra-orthodox who want the street lights changed so they don't have to press the button to cross a road on the sabbath, who build walls around themselves and stay utterly aloof from the rest of Australian society. Then we have the children of the holocaust and their families who formed a group in 2001 called "Jews for refugees" and who spent years advocating not locking refugees up in concentration camps in the desert as we still do - most interestingly is that many of the people were Palestinians and it made no difference to the group at all. There is something so completely deluded about people whose only knowledge of danger is in a book but who believe they have the right to cause great danger to another group of people whose only knowledge of danger is that inflicted on them by the Jews. Todays' report - Israel knew in 1967 occupation was illegal.
