Barry Rubin: Israel Has No Other Alternative

But the alternative it has is a good one. 

So says Barry Rubin! And I have to agree with him. Read the whole thing:

"What has the world's behavior taught us? Very simply this: Nothing we can do will suffice."

"Israel's fate includes to be slandered, its actions and society so often distorted by those responsible for conveying accurate information to their own societies. And that also means to be attacked violently by its neighbors, though it can minimize the effectiveness of that violence.  Like our ancestors we have to deal with this bizarre situation, this mistreatment that others don't even understand still exists."

"But we cannot let this nonsensical excuse for reality drive us mad or make us mad."

"There are only three ways, which must be combined, to survive: to believe truthful things, do constructive things, and laugh at the absurdity of the situation."
