Dreaming the wrong dream

This endless recycling of the same old factoids and tired rebuttals have been heard thousands of times. And they don't resonate with anyone.

In one of the best scenes (the prison scene) in one of my favorite movies, Blow, Diego says to Johnny Depp: You had a dream, yet you failed.Why? Depp: Because I got caught. Diego: No. You failed because you had the wrong dream. 

And so too with our Jewish dream, we are failing. And each and every time we fail, we are astonished. Something happens in Israel. Within hours the world media is filled with split screens of Israelis and Palestinians sparring with each other and news anchors over questions and accusations.
