    the beginning, the plans outlined by Meir, Dayan (I think), and Ben-Gurion followed a terrifying parallel to the obliteration of the Jews in WWII: first, limit their trade; then confine them geographically; and when all else fails, kill them.

    What were they thinking?  And how much of that thinking still poisons the minds of Israeli government, military, and citizens today?

    I am ashamed they call themselves Jews.  We were freed: it's our historic imperative to ensure that all others gain our same freedom.  It is, in no small part, why we were so quick to join the Civil Rights movement.
