Even though I seldom agree with what Amira Hass and Gideon Levy write, they often provide us with important information that otherwise would not be avaliable to us. Today Amira Hass has a very good article on the Op-Ed page of Ha'Aretz. It deals with the absurd way of thinking which lies at the basis of the vicious circle of violence in Israel and Palestine. She makes one very good observation about something that should worry all those concerned with the well-being of the Jewish state: "In Israel, military superiority was once presented as a precondition for any diplomatic settlement. But in effect it is the substitute that makes any diplomatic settlement superfluous."
