While few, if any, Israelis care about the contents of this article, the rest of the world does. It's just another nail in the coffin undermining Israel's claim to being a "western" democracy. If in 20-30 years down the road we (I'm an Israeli) don't have any friends left in the international community, we'll no doubt scream "antisemitism". But here, right before us, will be the true reason for our alienation: that we've allowed our anti-arab, pro-settlement, anti-democratic Israelis to steer us away from humanist values...all in the name of that now distorted word "Zionism". At this rate, I doubt we'll be around to celebrate our 100th birthday in 2048.
