Thank you for this article that also links to my comment on Michaeli piece yesterday. For me, you precisely formulated the sum of all fears behind the "Jewish state" drive. My fear is that the great majority of all Israelis are hostages to ideologists who will exploit the real state, its citizenry and resources in order to realize their vision. Our lives seem to count for nothing in this scenario.
