    I agree - Netanya is all talk and no action. I was afraid that he would surrender everything. Thank God he hasn't done that because he is afraid of losing his coalition. He should not beg Abbas at every opportunity to resume peace talks. Abbas should be begging him . However , the easiest way to get Abbas to talk is start building with a frenzy. Abbas will realize every day he doesn't talk he loses another 2% of the territory. Turkey is drifting away because Muslim fundamentalism has gripped the country as in Ft Hood. If it can happen in good USA- why not in Turkey ? We must come to our senses and realize that Arabs will always hate us and strive to destroy and only when we show them strength, will they respect and treat us a worthy opponents. Even Abdullah from Jordan has become a Muslim fanatic. It is evident in all his public proclamations- This is fact. Israel cannot change this trend. However ,the more we surrender , the more they tread on us and dare to strike us.

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
