    The Likud's Constitution, Article 1b, declares that the Likud movement is dedicated to "upholding the right of the Jewish People to Eretz Yisrael as an unquestionable right"שמירת זכותו של העם היהודי על ארץ ישראל, כזכות נצחית שאינה ניתנת לערעור. The term Eretz Yisrael includes also the Jordan Valley (at least) on the East side of the Jordan river. Likud managed not to introduce a change in its Charter even after a peace with Jordan was signed, because Labor was the ruling party at the time. But shouldn't it do so now? It is hard to give up on a dream. so in broad daylight you act in conformity with reality, while at night you dream. This is what Hamas will probably be doing in the future.
