    I appreciated Gideon's commentary supporting Barack Obama in the beginning of his term because it gave us a sense of hope that peace would some day come. His more recent pieces have been characterized by extreme self-loathing and borderline anti-Semitism. Yes, the decision to re-employ settlements was heartbreaking and will certainly set back the peace process but Eli Yishai does not speak for all of Israel or all Jews for that matter. He was able to attain influence through the formation of the current right-wing coalition which will hopefully fall soon. It is a shame that Tzipi Livni was unable to form her government in late 2008, but to be honest the peace process will be futile anyways. We need to look for structural changes that can adjust the perceptions of both Israelis and Pals away from mutual distrust and hatred.

    from the article: Thank you, Eli Yishai, for exposing the peace process masquerade
