Israel has no government, no clear public consensus on much of anything including even the validity of its founding principles, is beset by violent enemies and routinely vilified around the world, yet somehow not only survives but prospers. One needs to suspend disbelief when approaching Israel as one would when viewing a movie or a play. There’s an alternate reality at work. In such circumstances modesty gives way to speechlessness.
