    Here's a translation from what they say to what they mean: Bibi's "You can't impose peace" means "I sure hope Obama gets stopped politically before the pressure to agree to a U.S. plan gets so great that I have to join with Kadima or call a new election." Akaria's (#15) statement that "Jerusalem = Israel = Judaism" means "I conflate the cosmic with real estate, and if lots of people die as a result, I will blame the leftists." Mosdave (#7)'s "Israel is supposed to be a Western democracy and can't compare itself to the dictatorship" means "I'm not offended by oppression and don't much care what the Saudis do. What I care about is holding Jews up to the a standard high enough that they fail to reach it. Then I get to tell myself how moral I am. Give me a Palastinain suicide bomber and I'll go tsk, tsk. But give me an Israeli settler, and I experience the ecstacy of outrage. Just think of it, me, superior to Jews. That's just so cool." Hope the translation helps.
