    You never know with Aluf Benn, all of sudden he writes a very good article. It sounds like the JPost not like the leftist leaflet. Certainly, our Great Empire is in a steep decline, started in 1999-2000. Aluf has noticed it ten years later. Just like with the collapse of the Soviet Empire two elements are present: 1. An unwinnable Afghanistan War; and, 2. A complete systemic financial bankruptcy. In both cases, the Soviet and American, arrogance and extreme naiveté of the leaders caused the collapse. The American collapse might last another 50 years because there is no replacement. Everyone is sick of the Palestinians: the Americans, the Israelis, the Arabs, and the whole world. Obama, as a novice in the world politics, was misled by his "J" Streeters and the Pro-Arab lobby, Jimmy, Zbig, Rashid, etc. , by all his cheerleaders "Yes, He Can!" The Palestinians simply have no idea what they want, but in any case they wouldn't get anyway.
