When - with some delay - I read a belated but as always insightful comment made by Head Heeb's Jonathan Edelstein ( see posting on this blog on March 14th ), I was reminded of yesterday's editorial in Ha'Aretz. Of course, Israel is a much stronger state ( and democracy ) than Lebanon, but the threat from the fringes of Israel's rightwing extremist groups and individuals is very real, I am afraid, and should be neither exaggerated nor underestimated. This, of course, is a truism, but still, that does not mean that it should not be said.
