Inescapably the politics of Golda's Balcony are one-sided, and one-sided politics are doomed to oversimplicity. Too often in the play Golda mouths lines that would seem to most ears like common sense, but would sound to Israel's enemies like sugar-coated demands for capitulation. "There will be peace when the Arabs learn to love their children more than they hate the Jews." It's seductive as all hell, but what insidious subtext lurks therein? The implicit assumption that all people, both the subjects of governments as well as states themselves, have the right to exist? That the disregard for that assumption is a valid pretext for war? Obviously the politics of warfare are vastly more complicated than that, and Meir, Morris, Morgan, and GableStage are fools for suggesting otherwise, even for a moment. Aren't they?
