    • Government lacking cohesion and shackled with inertia • Government Policys for selling- not for eating • Criticism of Israel perceived as enemy action • Progress on Palistinian Issue seen as our way or no way • Don’t need a solution until we are losing • Talking is weakness • Personal values and acheivments (Cabinet) before Israel • Dialogue perceived as Military Responses • Military Responces seen as Intellectual Strength and Monuments to its Architects • War perceived as natural escalation of disagreement • When things go pear shaped – blame everyone else • Democracy sidelined and challenged • Winning is Losing • We can achieve our aims without help from Europe • Europe is not our Friend • Belief that Israel is better served with a Military Asendancy The time for conflict is over , its time for the Politicians to serve the People of Israel In a way that delivers and sustains Peace and Democracy in the Region . I am 58 years old now and have watched and listened to Israel and its Neibhours light and blow out the candle of Hope on numerous occassions .I write this with sincere hope that Good Judgement and common sence will visit soon.
