    It's time to call a spade a spade. Israel will never make peace with the Palestinians, unless, and until, it is imposed from the outside and that means by the U.S. This game that the U.S. and Israel have been playing for years is phony. The U.S. has different interests than Israel and vice versa. It's normal. This business of giving lip service about "mutual interests" is bullshit and the sooner we come to grips with it, the better it will be. Israel wants something that no one can give it, and the U.S. cannot hope that peace can be achieved. Again, unless and until, the U.S. makes this existential decision. It is better that the two countries go their own ways and deal with their own problems on their own. That way Israel is not a vassal country, and the U.S. doesn't have to give billions of dollars to Israel. That would be honest for both sides.

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
