Israel Takes the Bait

Looks like George Packer and moi think alike:

Israel Takes the Bait

My only "but" is that classic civil disobedience tends to happen within the confines of the same country, like Packer's Birmingham example. It is a sobering new variant that citizens of a foreign country decide to confront a foreign state outside their borders. Except for Greenpeace, I can't think of any other example of foreign civil disobedience. But the fact is, the world has become minuscule.
