    In 1995, after Rabin's assassinatioh, the Labor party was 20% ahead of Likud in the polls, but thanks to a series of suicide attacks launched against Israel by Hamas, Netanyahu managed to convince Israelis that without the presence of the IDF in the West Bank, it would become easier for Hamas to strike Israel, and ultimately, he managed to win the election the 1996 election with a small margin. The same thing happened once again in 2000, when blind terrorism brought the premature end of Barak's tenure, just when he was on the brink of a peace agreement with the Palestinians. In 2006, Hezbollah's victory against Israel, convinced Israelis to bury the unilateral disengagement plan, according which Israel was supposed to withdraw unilaterally from 90% of the West Bank before 2010. Hezbollah's victory against Israel in 2006, is also what enabled Likud, which ended up with only 12 seats at the 2006 election, to make a spectacular comeback and win the 2009 election. Thus, if you want the Israeli Peace camp to prevail, ask the islamist gangsters of Hamas and Hezbollah to renounce their dream of destroying Israel, instead of doing an armchair psychoanalysis of Israel.
