This is a stunning, exhaustive analysis of Israel's history, factions, and current situation. I appreciate your lucid and eloquent presentation.

As a Jew living in the U.S., my knowledge of Israel's inner workings is sadly limited.

My question is how you feel about living in the midst of this maelstrom. Are you at all optimistic?

Appreciate your comment. Making certain the facts are correct is the important and exhausting issue. Lots of malestroms in our lives, just have to live with them, learn how to cope, and find the joys that are there. I try to make sure I do not add to the injustices. As far as being optimistic, the oppression of the Palestinians has had one trajectory for 75 years, and grows greater each year. Tough to be optimistic.
