Gideon, without you many of us in the Diaspora would feel that Israelis had lost all sense of ethical awareness. What Israel is doing is a chillul haShem, a true desecration of God's name, of the ethical and spiritual heritage of the Jewish people, and of the martyrs of our people throughout the ages who kept to Judaism precisely because it had not succumbed to the logic of power and cruelty that ruled the world. It is a tragedy today to hear so many Jews defending policies of oppression that are cruel and heartless and compassionless by saying "yes, but look at how terrible our enemies are--one must be realistic." The whole point of being Jewish is to proclaim to the world that the ways of the world can and should be changed, that justice, peace and love should rule the world, not power and domination. If we can't stay true to that, then there is no right to call Israel a "Jewish" state, but only a state with a lot of psychologically wounded Jews who are wounding others.
