    "Where will the left be in 2045? Will there be a left at all?" (Joe Sittizen) Where will the Jewish state be in 2045, after a Two State solution had been found to be practicable no more, and a Jewish minority, between the sea and the river, had been faced with an impossible choice: Either to forcibly impose its rule over an Arab majority, OR, for those still here, to accept resignedly to live in a "one-man-one-vote" state for two peoples, extending from the sea to the river Jordan? Will there still be a Jewish and democratic state at all, if Israel fails to separate from the Palestinians? Or will Zionism be then, in 2045, spoken of as the most dismal failure of the Jewish people in modern time, the Nations telling us, "Sorry guys, but you had your chance." "A phenomenon noticeable throughout history, regardless of place or period, is the pursuit by governments of policies contrary to their own interests." The opening words of historian Barbara W. Tuchman, in 'The March of Folly - From Troy to Vietnam". "Persistence in error is the problem. Practitioners of government continue down the wrong road as if in thrall to some Merlin with magic power to direct their steps. There is always freedom of choice to change or desist from a counter-productive course if the policy-maker has the moral courage to exercise it. Yet to recognize error, to cut losses, to alter course, is the most repugnant option in government." (Barbara Tuchman).

Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn

Why Britain's Labour has become synonymous with anti-Semitism

When senior party members spout vile anti-Jewish theories and at the same time insist they are in no way anti-Semites, they are not lying.

Alvy (Woody Allen) and Annie (Diane Keaton) in 'Annie Hall.'
Why is it hard to fall in love, and even harder to sustain it?

The answer can be summed up in one word, narcissism, which manifests itself in three principal ways. There are ways to overcome this love of self, however.
