    Never mind the exaggeration of calling Olmert and Livni "post-Zionists" and dexribing their position as "Now along come Olmert and Livni and maintain that it is wrong for Jews to be living beyond the 1949 armistice lines, and that this wrong has to be corrected by the uprooting of settlements." Note that Olmert and Livni want to keep big settlements blocks inside Israel, so that they do not "sanctify" the Green Line. But Arens the Neanderthal is against ANY DIVISION of the land. What would he do with the 4 million Palestinians living in the Territories (added to the 1.4 Israeli Arabs), Arens doesn't tell us and doesn't know himself. Had he had a clue, the Likud would have come up with such a plan in its last 30 years of being politically dominant in Israel. Let us recall that the achievement of a Jewish State was the result of a compromise, agreeing to the Partition of the Land. This is not post-Zionism but mainstream practical Zionism. Had the Neanderthals Arens and Begin had any political influence in pre-state Israel, there would not have been a state. Begin later showed he could learn a little (just a bit) and concluded a peace with Egypt. Guess what, Arens voted against that peace agreement. A pure-blooded Neanderthal.
