Please, hate us! – Haaretz Daily Newspaper | Israel News

without a sense of siege or the feeling that the entire world is closing in on us, and without the certainty that no matter what we do anti-Semitism will continue to flourish, the State of Israel might lose its justification for existing. And so a Turkey that closes its skies to us is simply the fulfillment of every Israeli’s masochistic nationalist wishes.

Every new report from the outside world, like that statement about closing airspace to Israeli planes, or spray-painted swastikas on graves in a Greek village, or the brawl between Arab ruffians and Jews in Germany – any such scrap of news adds to the ideological opium that clouds the Israeli’s mind with the notion that his only course of action is to hunker down, seal all the borders and wait for catastrophe.
