Good article. My own take on Israel's issues is that when you combine a (perhaps) still-genetically influential desert culture/mind set and add to that a long history of persecution and a modern situation of unending conflict and sense of threat (yes folks, Jews and Israelis do indeed feel threatened), what you get with this mix is a phenomenally successful tactical ability which looks mostly at day-to-day survival, with little or no emphasis (or ability) to look at things strategically and long-term. The Palestinians are likewise in a similar situation and so you have a situation akin to two mutually antagonistic siamese twins always trying to get the upper hand over the other. You can see what the results are.

We leftists whine and complain, we only talk about how bleak and hopeless life is in Israel. We alienate all those Israelis whose support we need to bring political change.21:35 11.02.16 | 0 comments
