This is nothing new. The seeds were planted in 1967 and they have been cultivated and nurtured ever since by the government that now warns of the dangers of the direction Israel has chosen. Evelyn Gordon and dershowitz are indeed caught in their own bubble of deception. I suppose they sincerely believe their lies. But they have turned around the argument and cast aspersions when they should be reflecting back on them. They have helpe create this world view which dominates the right wing religio/nationalist that have highjacked Judaism and turned it into a tribal cult. They need to believe that they exist in a world that is against them. In a world were laws pertain by divine right to Jews in a way they do not to gentiles. Peace is equated with a danger of assimilation. The likes of Gordon and dershowitz play into this sick world view. For them moderation is a lack of courage and existing under eternal seige is the only viable option for Israel and Jews.
