Israel seems determined to be perceived as small in more ways than one. It has reached the level of appearing to be a very very small limited and deeply compromised democracy, with the security apparatus really being the predominant aspect of the nation. Do Israelis have any idea of how negatively something like this reflects on their country? I know it's small in comparison to the great crime of the Occupation, but at this point if it were me, I would endeavor to salvage any little scrap of legitimacy I could in world opinion. lol, I think I'll pass on the tourist info, thanks anyway.
