    "Assistant Sec. of State Shapiro says U.S. funds for Iron Dome anti-missile system, increased security aid package, could aid stalling Mideast peace talks". What kind of convoluted logic is that? How is this an aid to peace talks? I would have imagined sitting down at the table as an honest, transparent participant would have gone a lot further. Peace will come when Israel honestly faces up to its international obligations, abandons its expansionist dreams and stands behind its agreements. More weapons solves nothing except if you are trying to intimidate the other side and that will never work. Surely by now the Americans must realise that. Then again the rapacious military-industrial complex needs to be fed and this is as good a way as any. Absolutely nothing to do with peace of course, quite the opposite, but then again when would that occur to Americans?

Israel's angry, bitter left must reclaim the language of hope

We leftists whine and complain, we only talk about how bleak and hopeless life is in Israel. We alienate all those Israelis whose support we need to bring political change.
