They don’t understand what is going on; they believe that a developed state that has grown, literally, from scratch, may be the cause of the hatred of other nations. Another explanation is the religious conflicts, but this attempt is also insufficient.

Today, Israel finds itself facing the threat of a boycott. Members of the right and the left political map blame one another for this situation, but the real reasons are much deeper than that.

The hatred people feel towards us didn’t start today or yesterday. It makes no difference what excuses there are for it; there is only one real reason for this hate, which is that we don’t bring goodness to the world.
