    Mr. B. Schaepdryver, YOU are forgetting something very crucial in your reply, that one should always remember : Eretz Ysrael has no government, no public, no army and no police. The state of Israel has. On May 11, 1949, the UN admitted the state of Israel - not Eretz Ysrael - as its 59th member. It is the existence of Israel the state that needs to be recognized by its enemies. Eretz Ysrael has no such need. It always has been, and always be. You asked what we should be worried about in what they mean by "For now only." I don't know about G.Levy, but in my sense we Israelis should worry, for yet a long time to come, about our enemies's long term plans. That doesn't mean we should expect Haniyeh and thus Hamas to awake, one day, as fervent zionists. The fact that this is a very remote possibility doesn't mean neither we Israelis should be going on dominating and ruling "a hostile foreign population which is different in its language, history, culture, religion, national consciousness and aspirations, economy and social structure ...". From Prof Jacob Talmon's open letter to Menahem Begin, 1980. http://www.fmep.org/analysis/articles/prophetic_message.html Peace has its own dynamics, as much as war has. Governments come and go. The real one to decide about the future of a Palestinian state will be the Palestinian people. Not a bunch of fanatical ideologues.

Too many Labour politicians cravenly adopted the anti-Semitic tropes and anti-Israel demonization they think will get them British Muslim votes, rather than standing up to the prejudice that exists in the community.
