You are not allowing for the fact that, whatever inefficiencies or pettinesses might occur "everywhere", the sort I am complaining of here are those that occur only when a particular "victim" demographic has been identified by convention who can be thus treated with impunity. Are you happy that Israel should contain such a demographic? Because I am not. It's not a factor of the sort of society I thought I was devoting all those youthful energies to creating, back in my Zionist 1940s youth. My sister organised the Federation of Zionist Youth branch in our part of N London; the organisation used to meet every week in our house. This wasn't what we were striving for, believe me...

Oh, bugger it, you are making me emotional again. I really can't maintain this line of argument. It is just too intolerably painful and distressing to me
