    "The recent developments have left only two players in the Israeli-Palestinian arena: Israel and Hamas. There are no others. The most notable non-player is Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, who has nearly no ability to influence events - not in the case of Shalit and not in the matter of the Qassam rockets, the two issues at the center of the current violent confrontation." - Danny Rubinstein Olmert's program for Regime Change in Palestine has been a resounding failure. It is the most incompetent strategic move by Israel since Sharon decided to remake the map of the Middle east by taking Beirut. When one sets a goal of accomplishing something, and in the end not only accomplishes the opposite, but does other harm to oneself as well, the effort was a failure. People who pursue failure for the fun of it are known as Masochists.

Israel’s condemnation of Pride attack is hollow

Behind the pinkwashing, it turns out homophobia in its worst forms exists within the government.
