Regarding "He had a dream" by Uzi Benziman, Ha'Aretz Opinion & Comment, July 27, 2005 ( published in Ha'Aretz, July 28, 2005 ): Thank you for this beautifully written exposure of the settlers' opportunism and hypocrisy. Apparently Jewish history and the Holocaust do not offer enough reference material for the settlers to abuse, African-American history can be exploited just as easily. Historical comparisons are always problematic - no situation in history has ever been identical - but when, like Pinhas Wallerstein, you are defending the continuation of an unjust, controversial and money-squandering enterprise such as Israel's occupation of and settlements in the territories you should think more than twice before trying to enlist history for your cause and interests.
