When will the world accept Israel’s independence?

An article in The Jerusalem Post:

My comment:

While it sounds nice what Netanyahu says, Israel does not seem to have that independence right now. The IDF can go as far as the world allows it to go.

And many people, even here, suggest that the Israeli government should yield even more to the dictum from the White House.

We already know that in a globally interconnected and intricately interdependent world, nobody is truly independent, not even the “major powers.”

But when a country is strong and has a clear goal and purpose, it can positively influence others and control its own fate.

For Israel, it means an undisputed unity and mutual guarantee that is not based on common grief and constant, external, existential danger.

We need an intrinsic unity based on the original method that gave birth to the original Nation of Israel and which unity our predecessors kept until the Second Temple was also destroyed by the “unfounded hatred” between Jews.

Israel will become truly independent when we all become independent and free of our inherently selfish, egocentric, exploitative, and hateful nature and learn how to exist and behave above and against our instinctive egos.

With that, we will also show a crucially important positive example to others which will turn them into true “allies and supporters” of the Jewish Nation.

Everything else is simply empty talk.
