Congratulation for this brilliant article. All Israelis should read it three times daily in homes, school-classes, university seminar-rooms and in the army. The settlement issue, Michael, is but a single symptom. The causal therapy should focus on: deeply rooted "Chutzpah and Magi'a-li Syndromes" in our society, comprehending the deep meaning of "Rule of Law" and "Universal Human Rights" and excluding the viral impact of religious indoctrination of our youth leading to fanatic fundamentalism, hatred, pathologic nationalism and racism by returning to Enlightenment, Humanism and a pedagogy privated of nationalism & prejudice. Our kids need a return to values, fairy tales, classic literature as models and tools for future social confrontation when they mature, rather than foolishing idiotic internet-games and aggression triggering toys so common in Western societies which lost self-criticism and control and, above all in Israel: the willingness and ability to compromise on peace.
