    Livi's comments are in the "Well, Duh" catagory. The reliigoius/nationalsit policy of supporting settlement expansion at the expense of negotiations was bound to lead to where we are now. Expecting Bibi et. al. to make anything more than tactical adjustments is a fools errend. (Obama, anyone?) Thier expectation is to build as much as they can on the West Bank for as long as they can and to stop only at the edge of Palastinian population centers that are too thick to settle. They will then give the Pals the choice of being dhimis within a greater Israel, emigrating or being a Bantustan. The likelihood that this will work in the long run is petty small. They are surrounded by an awful lot of Arabs and Muslims and flying in the face of liberal Western values as well (that is, one man, one vote, equal protection of the laws, ssecular government and the stuff even right wingers in the US take for granted). How they think they will take on the whole world is beyond me. I think their essentially stratagy is to focus on what they want and can get in the short run and to hang the liong run.

For French teen studying in Israel, it's all about being a Jew among Jews

Arrivals / Departures: Anti-Semitism in France is certainly not the reason why this teen chose to come to Israel; an Israeli whose relatives perished in the Holocaust finds living in Berlin 'perfectly fine.'
