    We're seeing the so-called fruits of the peace agreement between Israel and Egypt. Nearly 30 years after that agreement, and we have yet to see any meaningful change in the attitude of the Egyptian people or government. In fact we still continue to see a buildup of arms and training on invading Israel. 50 years of peace means that in 20 years, we could reasonably expect another invasion from Egypt. As for the fruits of ending an occupation, we have Lebanon for an example. we're going on seven years since Israel left Lebanon. Yet, we still have Hizballah clinging to the idea that the Shebaa farms are a legitimate reason for continuing their call to eliminate Israel. Given that the group is backed by Syria and Iran, who both want to see Israel eliminated. And these are the terms offered by HAMAS. So its not surprising that Israel, doesn't seem to impressed with the deal.

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.
