I agree, Ronnie, in many ways Israel is the underdog. When I talk to my grandparents (old socialists) about Israel prior to 1967 they are very nostalgic; they even volunteered on a Kibbutz, etc. There was a point, probably in the early 70's when that changed, and was cemented in Lebanon coupled with the accceptance of a Palestinian nationalism (prior they were simply called ay-rabs) and the return of Arafat. Israel is indeed a beautiful and ingeneous nation, it just seems to have taken a few wrong turns as of late. I agree that the US admire chutzpah and aggression more than the Euro's (too traumatised by the past century), but unfortunately I believe that is more down to a limited exposure in the to information in the US on the subject than instinct. Israel would help itself by addressing this misconception now...the Chinese are even more distastful of such characteristics!! As for you lilywhites, you'd better run faster - here come the Claret and Blue.
