    " . . . until Israel abandons the W. Bank and the Israeli people ridthemselves of the lying fear-mongering forever failed generals who constantly act macho because they live in self-imposed delusions & ridiculous fear of Israel being overrun by Palestinians." =Mustapha K. Your strategy is seriously flawed if that is the problem. Consider for a minute what allows those 'failed' generals to control Israeli politics. 1. Israel barely survived the Palestinian civil war and Arab invasion of 1948. 2. As late as 1973, within the memory of many, Israel was on the ropes, threatened with an Syrian breakout of the Golan Heights and subsequent sweep through the north of the state. 3. In between those events, and ever since, there has been steady terrorism. If the problem is 'failed' Israeli generals who are misleading the Israeli public by fear-mongering, then why continue to give those generals what they want and need - continued terrorism to justify the fears they play upon and keep peace at bay?
