    Actually, I think the elections in israel may show that Israelis reject the right wing prospect of building in Palestinian land or annexation. This is also confirmed in opinion polls which show that 2/3rds of Israelis support a palestinian state, which directly contradicts your statement. Israel does not really want palestinian land, except for a few nuts who feel that their own self worth is somehow improved by nationalism. Israel has a highly successful economy with top ranked standards of living. Israel is a success and does not need land for “dignity”. But the election also shows that Israel is not going to roll over and give everything to a group that continues to describe Israel as a country that does not deserve to exist. The Palestinians need to think about how much of their own propaganda they really want to believe. Israel is not an evil, horrible oppressor – the Israeli people want to live in peace AND SECURITY and would accept a Palestinian state that does not threaten them. The election shows that if the Palestinian leadership actually took steps towards telling the Israeli public that they are interested in peaceful coexistence, it can happen. My own opinion is that the Palestinian leadership is afraid of having a state, because like every Arab state, it would be a miserable failure, and its failure would be magnified by the success of its neighbor, Israel… and thus its easier to continue to blame Israel than take charge of their own future.

Netanyahu trades Israel's democracy for a shtetl with German submarines
