    then he is a lame duck and judfging by other reports about his wife's intervention in the running of his own office, he seems to be a rather emasculated duck as well. The surprise in all of this is how long the selective memory of voters and especially Likud voters is. What we see today is exactly what we had last time Bibi was in office. What's changed? The game is being played at the highest ever stakes and involves the urgent need for strategic and not tactical thinking and decisions - you know thr sort of thing: Not "if I do this will I still be Prime Minister," but i"f I don't do this will there be a state?" Oh dear, so what it boils down to as it did before, is whether Bibi wants to go down in ignominy or as a footnote that says he took a wise decision and a new peace process finally achieved a breakthrough. It's up to Bibi and not his wife or anyone else. This it was and will be. Hitzilu Et Artzeinu!
