    There was a time Israel had leaders that understood and lived Jewish values. Leaders such as Rabin had the vision and courage. Prior prime ministers came close to reconciliation with the Palestinians. Those visions and efforts have been buried. Is Israel worse-off today than it was two years ago? Is this the Netanyahu legacy? Is it to be forever a fortress nation that has it's own Jewish ghetto that exceeds the imagination of anyone? Has Israel's leadership forever cast a dark shadow on the Jews of the world live, contribute and build the strength of host nations too numerous to count? Has Israel foresaken future generations for a piece of land and whatever foul deeds are required to take more land?
