This business of not recognizing what's in front of your nose is called denial in psychology and is, according to my admittedly imperfect knowledge of this subject, a symptom of disease. Hamas is there. Hizballah is there. Syria is there. Iran is there. Only when we recognize them can we hope to deal with them effectively.

Israel has to move towards taking responsibility for its own decisions and policies. Only integrating itself into its surroundings instead of standing aloof from them will guarantee its survival. Kicking the myth that Europe is unremimttingly anti-Israel or Jew would help no end too.
