It must be strange to be Israeli

September 22, 2011


By Philip Kraske



"The fact that we are not foreigners in this country, that we have rights in this country that go back 'only' 4,000 years, I will say this loud and clear," said Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu about his then-upcoming speech in the United Nations.



No doubt Susan Rice , America's ambassador to the UN, will hear these words and thank her stars that the American Indians' wrath still has 3,900 years to run before coming home to roost.



It must be strange to be Israeli. Present-day Israelis must run hot and cold about their historical responsibility to retain and flourish on land that belonged to their ancestors. After all, several Pacifics of water have passed under the bridge in 4,000 years, and it is unlikely that Mr. Netanyahu's genetic investment in the Holy Land exceeds that of, say, the average Beirut fruit vendor.
