Hello, ZP, A Jewish homeland? Surely! It is the dream of 2000 years, realised in our own time - a miracle! But the enemy - the "ignorant barbarian" you mentioned - I fear is not beyond Israel's borders so much as within them. For it was not an Arab who murdered Yitzhak Rabin. The barbarian is not at the gates, but within them, and he, too, is Jewish. Israel must recognise and peacefully resolve the tension from being at once both a Jewish homeland and a democratic state. The alternative is civil strife between those who would create a Jewish theocracy, intolerant of Arabs and of Jews who do not think as the theocrats do - and those wanting a democracy in which all Israelis may fully participate, and which stands ready to make peace with itself and its neighbours. Kind regards.
