It’s fashionable now to complain that Israel is an artificial country from 1947, with arbitrary borders left over from the colonial era; set up as a religious homeland for a fractious, unassimilable minority; a brutal tyranny under sham democratic institutions; determined to seize the territory of its neighbors; oppressive of its minorities and warlike to the rest of the world; the most dangerous flashpoint of our times.
