    identifying with a Palastinain state. A Jewish state is a necessity of history, and a Palastinain state may be so as well, but there's no reason to turn either into an monomaniacally ethnocentric entity rejecting all others who would be a part of the group. France and the U.K can be Catholic and Protestant in culture, but there can be room in both for Jews and Muslims, and both Israel and a Palastinain state can be the same. The Dreifus Affair in small and the Holocaust in large demonstrated that humanism is not enough, and Zionism is a requirement for the survival of the Jewish people. But Zionism without humanism is like a Beitar soccor riot: a cheap and tawdry affair not worthy of the Jewish people or anyone else.
