Ogni tanto, quando in Medioriente c’è casino, qui nella culla del pensiero illuminato occidentale salta fuori qualcuno che s’inventa che Israele è un errore storico. Stavolta è uno che si chiama Cohen:

The greatest mistake Israel could make at the moment is to forget that Israel itself is a mistake. It is an honest mistake, a well-intentioned mistake, a mistake for which no one is culpable, but the idea of creating a nation of European Jews in an area of Arab Muslims (and some Christians) has produced a century of warfare and terrorism of the sort we are seeing now. Israel fights Hezbollah in the north and Hamas in the south, but its most formidable enemy is history itself.
