A Special Place in Hell / Real men don’t talk Mideast peace – Haaretz Daily Newspaper | Israel News

Much too much of it has nothing to do with ideology, God’s promises or promises to God. For Jews and for Palestinians, whom history and tragedy have often and profoundly robbed of the sense and the substance of manhood,much too much of it has to do with the need to prove oneself a man.Even at the price of thinking like a 12-year-old boy.Real men, this religion preaches, don’t talk Mideast peace. Real men do not compromise. Real men neither bend nor relinquish, they concede no error, correct no course,It is a religion whose first tenet is that a peace which does not conform to the vision of the extremist is no peace at all.
