The 2 Israels

The one on the Internet and the actual place.
I always have this slightly odd feeling, when I arrive here, that there are two countries, one which exists on the internet, a virtual country, whose inhabitants are a species called "the Zionists," metal units constructed in the ideology factory concealed in a neo-con lab somewhere in the basement at AIPAC. The other country is inhabited by real people, real streets, real houses, real dogs, real cats, real dead tree newspapers. In this place, the other, on-line Israel, evaporates. At home in London have to struggle to maintain the reality of the non-virtual one.
