I'm not sure whether this got linked in the last few pages
Excellent article for me. Not meant flippantly but the illustration is also very good, as is the choice to use one instead of a photo.
I think it's worth trying to understand the historical context of this conflict, but it seems to me nobody in a position of power ever learns from history. It's not surprising the Holocaust has fixed an identity for many Israelis, or that its horror has led directly to later generations 'defending themselves' to an extent matching the excessive nature to that which tried to wipe them out entirely. Both are over the top reactions, one feeding the other until they beome the same disgusting thing. That is a tragedy. Maybe when the world changes, as the Holocaust achieved, it stays changed for longer than we dare hope. Another tragedy.
None of which excuses what they're doing right now, but you have to know your enemy.
