Israel vs. history
The greatest mistake Israel could make at the moment is to forget that Israel itself is a mistake. It is an honest mistake, a well-intentioned mistake, but the idea of creating a nation of European Jews in an area of Arab Muslims (and some Christians) has produced a century of warfare and terrorism of the sort we are seeing now. Israel fights Hezbollah and Hamas, but its most formidable enemy is history itself.
How do you think he would feel if someone told his mother that her son was her biggest mistake?
