    Hello there Akiva , I can sense your frustration with the Olmert government but I have to agree with Ernst I am not ready to accept the radical right--as a substitute either. Besides, I truly think we would be in the streets of American demanding their leaders be arrested for their racist policies.. Thus, Olmert should not abide by the statue quo which no one will accept anymore. Hence Olmert has to make the hard choices and suffer the consequence. As JFK said in one of his trip to Cape Cod, a people should not remain safely in the harbor they must take to the sea and reach out to others. Nixon went to China and Reagan aged 78 years old leaped out of the plane in a frigid cold day in Switzerland to greet the Russia leader Mickhail Gorbachev without scarf or gloves. Such enthusiasm! George Shultz wrote about this dynamice meeting. The English social reformers John Wesley and his brother Charles both crossed the Atlantic in the 19th century which took months --to spread the word of God's salvation to the new world on horse back. They gave their sermons in fields and barns. Today, leaders such as Olmert and other 21st century leaders look so cowardly. Afraid to risk anything. Dutch
