Today's Haaretz contains the perfect answer to this article. "This is about fear of the dark. Of the monstrous. In this case, the terror of finally uncovering what we ourselves are really made of. This is about the lengths we will go, and the depths, in order to protect what we so desperately need to believe about ourselves. This is about how many others we will need to blame, vilify, assault, scapegoat and smear, before we actually take one wholly honest long look in the mirror." - Bradley Burston Israel has become the author of it's discomfort. It has become it's own worst enemy. Nothing will improve for Israel until it stops destroying it's legitimacy by it's actions. Israel will not stop being it's worst enemy until it looks hard and honestly at what it has been doing. And it will engage in any sort of self-deception to avoid doing that. I hope Israel gets over it's sickness. It was once, and once might again, be a light unto the world.
