REX MURPHY ON ISRAEL

Editor's note, Jan 2, 2012

Readers may be interested to read  what  Rex Murphy had to say  at a  recent event in Vancouver about Israel. 

One of my favourites of what Murphy said as quoted in the  Vancouver Jewish Independent: 

“You ended up, when it came to Israel, and the little spit of land that was given and, in 60 years, you produce a society that runs through Nobel prizes like other people get stuff out of popcorn boxes, you have medicines that you transport to the world, you are first in high-tech, you do things in agriculture, you do things in literature. There is no end and – my God, think of it – all the while, in my judgment, under threat of immediate war and, in some minds, wished-for extinction. In other words, you’re not doing it at summer camp.”
