i've got news for you, israel has been in the midst of civil war for awhile now. when rabbis call on soldiers not to carry out the orders of the government, when settlers say they'll refuse to obey the government's order, when a prime minitsr is assassinated because of certain policies he undertook, that's civil war. it hasn't taken yet the conventional form of civil war as we know it, but even this is a matter of time. when a society lives in the kind of denial the isrealis have lived in for 57 years, not really knowing if they are a theocrtic medieval society or a western,liberal, law abiding tolerant society, a civil is inevitble. thee's mo other way the two society existing in issrael and which pull it into completely opposite directions can coexist without some kind of resolution which the israelis never dared to achieve. the western and medieval factions are enemies who were artificially put togethet into one nation. whether i watch the struggle it here on my big screen tv or not is irrelevant.
