    Sure, money does not make you smart. Chasing chickens in the dark, without a flashlight makes you look stupid. Politicians tend to seek the gravy train, or in the case of the US, the pork barrel.In many cases a premature Nobel Peace Prize, as in the above instance may well be construed as a carte blanche for demands well above the possibilities of any sitting government in Israel. Israel has taken its position, no doubt some compromises will be made, however, they will be slight..compared to what the enlightened and gracious president has in mind. Israel cannot back down. For, now we all know the truth. The right wing, have no wish for a two state solution. Rather to divide up the West Bank with Jordan. As stated by the mayor of Ariel. Time to buy batteries for the failing light of a flashlight, then again, where are the chickens.? I know,...in Washington. Good day.
