Jews always lived on the "unknown & hope". A situation that was imposed on them by the outside world and not of their choice. Israel inherited the Jewish History & that includes its past, present & future. "Is Israeli society strong enough to face the future ?" is a question that cast a shadow of doubt on Israel ability to detached itself from its past ! A very depressing speculation ! It reminds me of the day I started to hate Olmert & never to forgive him to my last day & over if possible. "Israel is doomed" ! is what Olmert said ! what was translated to my mind instantly "the party is over" ! Israel party is eternal ! It is based on an agreement with the creator of heaven & earth ! Judaism started with hope to cross a barren desert in the way to a promise land where milk & honey is plentiful. To day we have all that plus the beaches that no one told us anything about them ! What more do we want ?! Today is the "future"; if we keep living with faith & hope.
