Charles Krauthammer on Israel at 60

He goes to the fundamentals, and is of course right. Sometimes, it's refreshing to step back from the endless fixation on the complexities of the story and to look at the big picture.

I liked his quotation:
As historian Barbara Tuchman once wrote, Israel is "the only nation in the world that is governing itself in the same territory, under the same name, and with the same religion and same language as it did 3,000 years ago."
