Thank you for your comment- after listening today, I wondered how many people would have a similar response. I had hoped that Hartman would have shown more self insight but was disappointed that he could say, "the German Jews trusted, and look what happened..." without realizing that he had JUST said, "the Palestinians should trust us..." This, when Israel constantly shows itself the aggressor and regularly violates the civil and property rights of Palestinians. It was laughable, if not so tragic.
Furthermore, his sweeping generalizations of Palestinians left no doubt that he is a bigot as well. In Hartman's world, Israel won't know what peace is because it is only interested in peace on its terms. Like John Lennon wrote, "War is Over! If you want it."
