    IT SOUNDS LIKE BARAK IS WORKING AGAINST ISRAEL'S INTEREST. I HOPE NOT. 62% OF ISRAELI'S WANT THE ARABS OUT OF ISRAEL AND HALF OF THE ARAB POPULATION IN THE TERRITORIES WANT OUT WITH COMPENSATION. THE JEWISH STATE PLAN IS TAKING ROOT. THE ARABS UNDERSTAND THEIR IS NO FUTURE FOR THEM IN ISRAEL AND THE RECENT POLLS VALIDATE THIS REALITY. THE 'FAMILY REUNIFICATION LAW' IS ACTUALLY AN ATTEMPT TO ACCEPT THE 'RIGHT OF RETURN' UNDER ANOTHER NAME. BARAK IS PLAYING INTO THE HANDS OF THE PLO. THE EXPLANATIONS OF BARAK ARE OUT OF TOUCH WITH THE REALITIES OF TODAY. THE FACT IS THAT MOST OF THE ARABS THERE NOW UNDERSTAND THAT THEY ARE BEING USED AS PAWNS AND WANT OUT. I AM SURE THAT MANY NON GOVERNMENT CHURCH GROUPS WOULD HELP FINDING EMPLOYMENT AND HOUSING IN SOME OTHER COUNTRY FOR THESE ARABS. AND ISRAEL MUST PROVIDE A FINANCIAL PACKAGE FOR THIS BOLD PLAN. THIS IS THE ONLY WAY OUT OF THE CONFLICT AND EVERYONE KNOWS IT. SO LET'S SUGAR COATING THE REALITY.
