BZ, I'm not anti-Israel as I think you know. I'm deeply concerned because I sense Israel is slipping towards disaster and people like you aren't doing anything to stop it. - Comment - Israel News | Haaretz Daily Newspaper

    Let's be frank BZ. All I ask of Israel is what most of the world aks of Israel. 1) Get out of almost all the West bank, excpet for minor mulually agreed land swaps 2) Find some fair compromise on right of return, probably meaning 100,000ish or less returning and compensation for the rest 3) Stop discrmination against Israeli Arabs. That's it. That's all I and most of the world ask. From the Arabs I demand that in return for that, they recognise Israel, prevent any attacks on it and allow back or compensate Jews expelled from Arab countries. Israel has the potential to be an amazing combination of the best of both east and west. BUT, Bibi and his idiots are taking Israel on a different path entirely. One that could easily lead to war and even destruction. And because Israel has so much power and the Pals have so little, what Bibi does or does not do, is vital. By not standing up to Bibi, you are assisting that.
