    Sharon opened the flood gate. Olmert can't help being a Sharon. Kadima is half baked loaf.Hamas is a mouse pretend to be a walf. America get her sums wrong. The Palestinian/Israelis conflect like a Pasach sader; 'every hungry can come and eat'. The Left, trying to find what is left of it. The right is an orphan that was deserted by his father. Bellin eating his blue plans. Perese on the verge of composing a lament. Israel is living from day to day and its land shrinking. Everything all over the place and soon we shall have no place any more. It is just like the first lines of Disraeli's 'A Tale Of Two Cities'. But this time it is a Tale of One City. And here we are 23 days to the election. I wish there is a party that tells us to go on holiday.. Is all that because Democracy brought antidemocrats to power ? Akram Zekaria. PS Hamas should stand trials before given power. That is how Democracy can be redeemed. Otherwise our Demogratic values have no substance.
