Hi Swiss, Is it not possible that those who support the Right and PM Netanyahu have marked differences themselves in approaching Israel's foreign policies? Just to simplify the matter, the Right's main underlying difference with the supposed Left is that territorial concessions will bring insecurity to Israel and it's a sign of weakness not strength. They've argued that PM Netanyahu and his coalition agrees to the two states alongside each other. I believe that the recent row is similar to other incidents which have embarrassed not only other U.S. officials but also the U.N. under the previous government. This happens in bureaucracies unfortunately. If you think that within Israel, a left-leaning government (which I would prefer myself) is going to sign a peace agreement with the Palestinians, it's not going to happen given the diverse sectors within Israel and the historical precedence in this region. A pragmatic coalition is really Israel's best bet.
