    Hi Dave, In principle I agree with you. Peretz certainly has a bio that reads just like Lula's. Of course, if you're up on current Brazilian politics you know that Lula is in a bit of trouble and unfortunately, many Brazilians are starting to view him as just another corrupt politician. That's a shame. It should also be noted that Lula adopted a much more economically "friendly" policy during the presidential campaigns and since taking office. Its unlikely that Brazil would be experiencing the growth currently underway if Lula's policies matched his rhetoric from the 80s. Finally, in regards to this article, I couldn't agree more with Yossi. I have not always liked his opinions, though I agree with him on many matters. He is 100% right on the mark on this one. I'm a firm supporter both of Israel, and the United States and I find nothing anti-Israeli (or american) about this piece. Its simply the recognition of the fact that anybody who wishes to bring peace at this time, must empower himself since no outside forces are around to offer a guiding hide. That much has been obvious to many for quite some time.
