"Centralism in Israel means left, secular, empty, suicidal and incomprehensible." (Paul) What can be more suicidal and incomprehensible, than claiming that Israel cannot survive without keeping forever captive a foreign and stateless population? "There is nothing more contemptible or despicable than the use of religious sanctions in conflicts between nations and states." From an Open Letter to then-PM Begin, 1980, by Jacob Talmon (1916-1980), then Professor of Modern History at the Hebrew U of Jerusalem, 1957 Israel Prize for Social Sciences. www.fmep.org/analysis/analysis/a-prophetic-message-from-the-past In 1980, when our settlement adventure was still in infancy, when Hamas was a name nobody had yet heard, seven years before the outburst of the first Intifada, and 27 years before the Hamas takeover of the entire Gaza Strip, now an Islamist enclave Israel cannot live with - nor defeat. What is obvious to anyone in his right sense, no blockhead can begin to comprehend.
