More than a month ago somebody sent me a link to this article at the Britannica Blog. I must admit that I forgot about it, but when I cleaned up my mailbox I had another look at the article and remembered what I thought when I read it for the first time: it remains amazing to see how some people are still fascinated ( positively, as opposed to obessed ) by this country. It would be good if we ourselves realized once in a while that we still have a lot to be thankful for and fascinated about. Many of our curses are self-inflicted, and they do not annul our blessings. The article's writer, Michael Bard, is the author of Will Israel survive? ( The answer that he gives to his own book's title is a sound yes, by the way ).
