Read this if you want to understand Israel

MATTI FRIEDMAN is one of the best chroniclers of Mideast reality. He explained why news from this area does not reflect the truth — he’s not done there — and in this article, he explains how the very concept of Israel and Israelis is misunderstood, even by Israelis themselves. I’m proud to call myself a colleague of Matti’s — we worked together at AP and left for the same reasons — and here’s another long article that is worth pouring a cup of coffee, sitting back and taking the time to read from beginning to end.
