The first article in this series explained that there is no salvation. There is no magic solution that will make all the problems of Israel, the Middle East and the world vanish forever. There is an ongoing reality. History is a process, and our actions on one day will have repercussions on the next day. We need to plan for those repercussions, as well as to deal with new challenges that are going to be thrown at us by history. History will also offer us opportunities that we can and must exploit. We can exploit those opportunities only if we have laid strong national foundations.

It follows that the work of Zionism is never done, just as the work of any national movement or any national culture is not done, as long as the nation exists. There will not be a "post-Zionist" period as long as there is a Jewish nation, just as "post Hellenism" could only occur after there was no longer a Hellenistic civilization.

We must constantly return to our ideological foundations and renew them, and derive our policies from our ideas and long term goals, rather than seeking "salvation" or "permanent solutions" in gimmicks such as peace treaties or wars. The gimmicks are tools and results of policies, they are not goals or policies in themselves. The results of wars and peace treaties depend on their context: the underlying demographic and geopolitical realities and historical processes.
