Israel's right to exist is being called into question

The war in Lebanon has led to a spate of articles calling Israel's creation "a mistake" created "on Arab land" here are links to 2 of them: Truly Inconvenient Truths, Just where does the solution to the Mideast crisis lie?. The current war is not only dangerous in the short term that Jews are being killed, but has also led to a very worrying phenomenon, the legitimization of the view that there should be no State of Israel. It is no longer just the President of Iran, the head of Hamas or other Arab leaders making this call. It is people like Richard Cohen (who is Jewish) in the Washington Post, NY Magazine and other respected publications.
