    You are too much ahead of our times. Do you really think that our leaders or our people are mature enough to become wise or be generous with the "enemy" and to understand that if we were in their place we would have been much more violent and subversive against our subjugators? And not less important, do you really think that we are able to admit that there is no more immediate threat stemming from the Palestinians? How could we in this case continue to keep our people unified and ready to sacrifice for this country without a common mean enemy? Don't you see the terror of peace spreading all over every time there is a chance of progress in the talks meant to achieve it ? And that all this is part of a well-lubricated machinery intended to keep the people scared and yielding in order to retain all the lands, hoping that in some miraculous way the Palestinians would some day disappear? And if they don't, who cares? We will still have cheap labor force at hand for more time to go and, even much more thrilling, someone to hate and feel victimized by, which is what we do best...
