    " ... Jewish Liberals who forget too quickly the history lessons." (B.A.B) Zionism is not a Jewish crusade aimed at delivering the Holy Places back in the hands of Judaism. The "history lesson" that the Jewish Liberals have not forgotten, and that you and your kind should remember, is how all crusades have ended: In shameful disasters. In one decade, or two at most, there will be a solid Palestinian majority between the Sea and the Jordan River. We Israelis have to decide wether to live as a clear Jewish majority, in a homeland of our own - that wouldn't include East-Jerusalem, or in a country that does include it, but then as a Jewish minority under a Palestinian prime minister. Only religious fundamentalists - believing in eventual divine intervention in the affairs of a UN state member - think that we can have it both ways: A Jewish state AND an unquestioned Jewish rule over the West Bank and all its population. The choice is ours. And ours only.
