I often recognize my views in the articles of Ha'Aretz' Bradley Burston. That is definitely true for his piece about Daniel Pipes and, implicitly, about all those Jews abroad who believe that Zionism is necessarily rightwing and that their extremism can make up for the fact that they live thousands of miles away from the place that they care so much about. When we refuse to heed calls by people like Daniel Pipes to hit the Palestinians harder and harder, because we know that such hits do not hurt them as much as they hurt us, we show that we are truly independent. As Burston says, "Since when did we become mercenaries for Daniel Pipes?".
