Tony Judt

Yes, I have read Tony Judt's article in the New York Times and no, I did not like it one bit. He begins the piece with a most offensive romanticization of the Kibbutzim and the early "settlers." Again, he is one of those who believe that things were fine and dandy before 1967. Why are we so easy to satisfy? Is it becasue there is little support for Palestine in the US that a mild or logical observation from Jimmy Carter impresses us?
