    "We embrace our brothers the new immigrants, we embrace our brothers the Arabs, we embrace our brothers the Druze." Amir Peretz So all of a sudden Israel is presented with a new reality:-Blood or Peace. The International community is also faced with a new reality an alternative too, an unwilling war criminal to implement the Road Map or a man that on the night of his success in his victory speech said: "We will not rest until we reach a permanent agreement (with the Palestinians) that would secure a safe future for our children and that would provide us with renewed hope to live in a region where people lead a life of cooperation and not, God forbid, where blood is shed from time to time," Sharon having pissed of the extreme right wing camp can try to mend fences, but who believes that will take root? He can't expect any support from the left and the "center" will move left without taking a step. As an oriental Jew of the young generation Amir Peretz mentioned the "ethnic demon", but the mere fact that he was elected shows that things may just be improving on this issue in Israel and maybe the young state is ready for its first Sephardim PM. There is always the alternative to re-elect the obesse war criminal, but with a Likud in disaray and Bibi having drafted the most insanely injust budget, it looks like trouble came knocking on their door. So will Sharon cut his losses and creat his new "Likud lite"? Well Labor is out of Gov't and Shimon humiliated and bitter. It's a great morning.
