Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think we agree that it's dangerous because of its historical grounding (I didn't see your upthread remark until after I posted).

I'm not entirely sure I understand your statement:

"Israel really is the last time that Britain got away with what they wanted."

I don't know the history of the region in great detail, but as I recall, Jewish organizations waged a fairly bloody campaign against the Mandatory government in the years following WW2 (prime minister Menahim Begin was involved in a hotel bombing that claimed over 90 lives).

The fact is that what we're experiencing right now is a top-down disaster. -Paul Krugman
