And They Call the State Pariah

by
Abby Zimet

From Haaretz, in the wake of the Dubai killing, a pained impassioned look with
envy at those who hate Israel, its "failings and blunders, its
self-satisfied blindness." Thus is one "spared all inclination to try
to fix what's wrong, to work to set it right."

"Determined to take our fate into its own hands,
Israel, at its highest level, has decided that the job of
delegitimizing the Jewish state must not be left to foreigners and
amateurs. Showing itself desperate to be a pariah state, Israel will
now get it done on its own."
