I never liked the Likud, they could never get over the Galut. They think the whole world is against them and the walls of their shtetl will protect them. If everybody who tells you "no" is your enemy, then you're a spoiled child. I don't know why the Israeli government has to give money to settlers to build these settlements while cutting back on social subsidies and the like. It's all politics and why should the US back up what's really not going to stand up to long term international law/pressure.
