I call'd the devil, and he came / And with wonder his form did I closely scan / He is not ugly, and is not lame / But really a handsome and charming man / A man in the prime of life is the devil / Obliging, a man of the world, and civil / A diplomatist too, well skill'd in debate / He talks quite glibly of church and state.
The Jewish settlers of Gaza and in the West Bank have a dream for the future of Israel.... The settlers' dream is to create a 'Greater Israel' with Jewish settlements wall-to-wall.... In such a state, democracy will have to bow to the rabbis. The Knesset, the government, the Supreme Court, will be allowed to continue to exist, provided that the rabbis approve of their decisions.... If we, secular Israelis, erase our own existence, the settlers will shower us with brotherly love. But if we insist that we have a different vision for Israel, we immediately become traitors, Arab-lovers or even Nazis.
