Solution: Deconstructing Neo-Secular Arguments

Nelson Mandella deconstructs and rebuffs Thomas Friedman's account of the dynamics of the middle east conflict thus:

The value of separation is measured in terms of the ability of Israel to keep the Jewish state Jewish, and not to have a Palestinian minority that could have the opportunity to become a majority at some time in the future. If this takes place, it would force Israel to either become a secular democratic or bi-national state, or to turn into a state of apartheid not only de facto, but also de jure. [Letter from Nelson Mandella to Thomas Friedman, 2001]
It is no secret. What is happening is clear as the sun. The Jewish inhabitans of the new state are motivated by a nationalism which Einstien cautioned against. So why does the WASP power structure in the USA encourage it? The reason ? You may not be ready for the reason. I'll share it with you anyway:

It's because there is a massive undercurrent of religious dogma which blinds both politician and news anchor; and by extension the fickle masses into mis-percieving reality. You need only listen to the chatter and clearly you will hear it: they want to create the conditions so as to bring Jesus back - they want Armageddon (AKA conflict of civilizations/WWIII).
