rabin and begin were true patriots with little self interest. bibi, not so. he likes to think himself as big deal because he can consort with dershowitz who is a naive about israel and can be taken for a ride. begin still believed everything had to do with antisemitism and allowedw the disasterous lebanese war. sharon was corrupt, loved money and consorted with organized crime. gaza was not a change in heart but a military tactic which has become a humanitaian disiaster. he did nothing to stop the settlements which may or may not have known is israel's cancer. if it not cut out now it will spread and will soon be inoperable and the jewish demoratic state will die a slow and ugly death.
