    generation of internecine struggle for a single leader capable of leading, another, but hopefully more realistic, Yasser Arafat to emerge. So why the charade of a Palestine peace track? Well, perhaps it is easier to appear interested in peace, enter the Palestinians, than to pay the cost of peace, exit Syria and the Golan? Seven years ago as Prime Minister Ehud Barak appeared to choose the same tack: meters of Kineret (Golan a done deal) from agreement with Assad Barak seemed to walk away, to embrace instead what appeared to be Clintons choice, the Rais, Yasser Arafat and Palestine. Then there was the debacle of Camp David and the rest is Intifada and reoccupation. But hold on, maybe things were not as history records them; maybe it was always Baraks recognition that peace with Palestine would never precede peace with Syria; that it was Hafez and not Ehud who walked away leaving Barak no choice but to reengage the Palestinians if he were to have a peace partner. Well, maybe.

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
