The Problem Of A Certain Kind Of Israeli, Who "Forgets That He Is In The Right"
From a poem, Gone Is The Dream, by the Israeli poet Natan Alterman:
“Then said Satan: This besieged one, how shall I overcome him?
He has courage and ability, he has weapons and imagination.
So he said: I shall not take his strength, nor muzzle nor bridle him.
Nor soften nor weaken his hands, only one thing shall I do;
I shall dull his brain and he will forget that he is in the right.”
