    Here is basically what Carlo Strenger says: 1. The notion that "the world is unfair to the Jewish State" is a paranoid figment of the Jews' imagination. 2. The voluminous criticism of the Jewish State by "the world" is correct and legitimate and the fault of the Jews themselves. One note to Carlo Strenger: Make no mistake: you, Carlo Strenger, are "the Jewish State" to these "world people". They do not distinguish between you and Meir Kahane, no matter how much you vilify Israel and protest your opposition to Israeli "policies". Because Carlos Strenger, THEY are the ones with the bigotry problem, not the "right wing Israelis". You remind me of the assimilated German Jews who were SURE that the Jews who the Nazis hated were just the smelly antiintegrationist religious Polish Jews. Until the day comes when you realize that the criticism of Israel is wholly inconsistant with the criticism other countrys receive for doing the same things.
