    Israel is well on the way to becoming a pariah state. There are no sanctions yet. There is no boycott yet. There is no organized international condemnation yet. Still, we can see progress in that direction with each passing week and month. The progress has been steady with no inturruption. Israels traditional sponsors, America, France and Germany are even losing their enthusiasm to continue to offer financial and political support for Israels actions. I don't believe there is any chance that Israels behavior will suddenly change. There will be no Ghandi figure or Mandella or Lincoln on either side. Such a person on the Palestinian side would be eaten alive by Israel. Such a person on the Israeli side would be eaten alive by Israel. Peace must come from outside and must be forced upon an unwilling Israel. Israel will fight the peace process every step of the way. It will take far more determination than Obama has shown to bring peace. Anyway, Kudos to the Greeks that are keeping this matter before the eyes of the world. Progress is progress.
