    Barak was well-intended, but acted with John Wayne's arrogance at Camp David. Then left Lebanon without a negotiation with the Lebanese government (and their Syrian patrons). Sharon left Gaza and parts of the West Bank without strengthening Abbas through negotiations, and got Hamastan in Gaza in return. Olmert went into a hasty, stupid war in Lebanon, and into a cul-de-sac in Annapolis, while Iran builds the bomb and Israeli PR is catastrophic... Israel, undortunately, has ceased to be an intelligent body.
