"Israel is a mistake"

How's that for a headline in the Washington Post? Via Rolled-Up Trousers, and how is the following for the opening paragraph, of the article that followed:
The greatest mistake Israel could make at the moment is to forget that Israel itself is a mistake. It is an honest mistake, a well-intentioned mistake, a mistake for which no one is culpable, but the idea of creating a nation of European Jews in an area of Arab Muslims (and some Christians) has produced a century of warfare and terrorism of the sort we are seeing now.

Pretty controversial indeed.

An honest, well-intentioned mistake, for which nobody is culpable.
