I have a lot of respect for Halper, it takes balls to go against the grain like he does in a society like Israel that prizes groupthink, and for so many years. It’s remarkable that he hasn’t given up the fight and left for another country and no one would blame him if he did.
But I agree, it’s a pipe dream at this point. It seems like his (and Gideon Levy’s) main function is observing and cataloguing what is going on, try as they might to effect real change in that country. Israel seems to be growing more insular as time passes.
