Martin Buber argued that Zionism shoukd be an ideal, and not just an effort to make a typical nation-state. Zionism had to stand for something. Good for you, editorialists. By criticizing, you remind the world that there is an Israel with ethics. Without ideals, Israel becomes something like Uraguay-with-bad-neighbors: a country with nice beaches and good coffee houses, but only a tourist stop. Not a movement that inspires devotion. Again, good for Haaretz.
