    Left and right is no longer defined by Socialist versus Revisionist but by belief and trust in the Arab's willingness to leave us alone. The left would like to trust the Arabs willingness to peace and has internalized the hope of brotherly love. It even sees itself-- well the right-- to blame for being hated. The right sees its consequences in history and refuses accept eternal Jew as eternal victim much less accept the blame. Its also optimist versus realist. The right grasps that the Arabs don't speak with a united voice and for every Arab that truly would like to live in peace and co-existence there is an Nationalistic Arab leadership and a significant mass of Arabs that would never accept peace and co-existence short of the complete Muslim hegemony and a "final solution". Of course even within this "dream" there too is no unity amongst these forces and enough family and tribal feuds--- and inter-Muslim conflicts--- to keep the soil watered in blood to the last man standing..
