PART I: Maybe not so crazy?

There are 10 million things I’ll never understand about Israel. One million because I came here late in life and missed all the formative experiences. Nine million because nobody will ever tell me. The past here is far more pervasive and far more opaque than in America. Still, after seven years in residence, I can’t avoid reaching a few conclusions, based mostly upon my sensibility as a historian and an occasionally keen grasp of the obvious.
