    What the author assumes is that Israel's behaviour is the basis of the limbos that it is in. I would suggest that the security limbo is a product of an, at best, indifferent world and a hostile and huge Islamic population. This latter population has been hostile since time immemorial & would like to wipe Jews off the face of the earth. Diplomatic, yes, really for the same reasons, plus I would agree Netanyahu's ineptitude. As to moral limbo, no way. There is a single imperative. Survival. And that is threatened. Israel must do anything it has to to ensure its survival. The moral case of the Pals and Israelis is very ambiguous. Jews had first rights and were occupied. Pals and their Arab brethren did what they could to make life miserable for us, going so far as to join the Hitler gang. Then from the very beginning and repeatedly they attacked Israel and Israelis, all of them, even those in cribs. They denied Jews the right to worship at their holiest site and treated with with contempt
