    'Research shows that Israelis would gladly agree to a two state solution if their security concerns could be appeased' The only trouble is that a fair whack of Israelis think the 2SS solution means transferring Palestinians to Jordon which then becomes the Palestinian state, another sizeable lot think that the Palestinian state should be a series of small disconnected bantustans over which Israel maintains control of border and airspace similar to Israeli control over Gaza and very few think that Israel should ever give back EJ. As for security concerns - my guess is that these can never be addressed. I only hope that Obama spends as little of his hard earned politcial capital on Israel as possible. The Israelis have made a series of choices, under governments of all types, to prioratize gaining control of land. It really isn't up to the USA to continually bail it out - its time to just let Israel go its own way and face the consequences of its own actions on its own. As a 'state', it either adapts to the changing world power structures or it faces the fate of the dodo bird. Prehaps the only future is Israeli Jews accepting that they live as full equals to non-Jews; that Israel ceases to be a state of the Jews but just becomes a secular state where lots of Jews (and Palistinians) live. As full equals.

Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn

Why Britain's Labour has become synonymous with anti-Semitism

When senior party members spout vile anti-Jewish theories and at the same time insist they are in no way anti-Semites, they truly believe they are not lying.

Alvy (Woody Allen) and Annie (Diane Keaton) in 'Annie Hall.'
Why is it hard to fall in love, and even harder to sustain it?

The answer can be summed up in one word, narcissism, which manifests itself in three principal ways. There are ways to overcome this love of self, however.
