    Having read Mr. Schiff's piece, my first thought is: Boker tov, Eliyahu. Of course it will be Shiites who will "win " in Iraq. What did you expect, Mr. Schiff. Iraq is predominantly Shiite... They deserve to "win". Israel rallied so strongly to have Saddam and his minority-Sunni rule removed from power. So, this is what you called for, and this is what you are getting. In the end, however, there is only one thing that will bring Israel the peace and security it desires (and deserves): Give the Palestinians their due. Make peace with them - and with Syria and Lebanon. Once Israel will have accepted the Arab League peace initiative and will have withdrawn from the Arab lands it occupies since 1967, its regional standing will have improved greatly. It will then not have to worry any longer whether it is Shiites or Sunnis or whoever calling the shots in Baghdad. It's all so obvious. Sigh.
