    Doris, actually this is probably the last opportunity of the Palestinians to establish a responsible state. Israel is justifiably reluctant, given the last Palestinian Intifada and the horrendous Pal civil war in Gaza. This time Israel must be convinced by deeds that the Pals are responsible. And Doris, time is very much on Israel's side. The most recent demographic studies indicate that the Jewish birthrate has exceeded the Pals birthrate, and the projections are that the Jewish majority will increase. Furthermore, the Palestinians overestimated their numbers by over 1.3 million, by doing stupid things such as double-counting the numbers of Arabs in Jerusalem. Israel is going to survive; of course it would be preferable that it survive in peace.

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
