I remember the 5th of June of 50 years ago. I remember the build-up of worry and existential fear during the waiting period preceding Israel’s pre-emptive strike. I remember the immense relief, produced by the quick victory, and I also remember the feeling of exhilaration brought about by the booty: Jerusalem, Sinai, the West Bank and the Golan Heights. I don’t think anyone considered Gaza as booty.
But, I also remember that it was very quickly clear to some that the occupation would morally destroy us: It has.
Can Israel change the sick and self-destructive course on which it has embarked 50 years ago? It does not look promising.
