    It's right here: "Defined, secure borders would not only make Israel safer but also the rest of the world." Noble sentiments, but to a politician like Barak Israel has the right to UNILATERALLY "define" where those "secure borders" will be, and it is the job of the Pals to turn up, sign off on it, and walk away with the scraps. That's the entire rationale behind using "settlements" to create "facts on the ground", and there is no sign whatsoever that Barak opposes that policy. He wants Israel to annex everything behind the wall, and he bemoans the fact that the Pals will not accept that "offer". S: "Finally someone in the Israeli political elite is seeing what the rest of the world does." No, he's simply moaning, groaning and wringing his hands because he is greedy for something but he can't work out a way to get his pudgy little hands on it that ISN'T stealing.
