    as well as spiritual crises (as karma is catching up with it) are very good for it in the long run. suffering strengthens and humbles in the best of ways. it wisens you and teaches you the value and necessity of compromise, diplomacy and empathy. israelis have already understood this as evident by their protests, but the leaders are as thick skulled as ever. that's because israelis have already suffered as mere human beings, but the leaders' massive egos make them immune to human suffering. besides, they are rich and powerful and want to stay that way. what do they care for the average israeli, much less the average palestinian or egyptian or turk? israel needs a JFK type of PM just about now who'll make the world fall in love with him by speaking the lingo of a youthful, modern israeli and arab, and who genuinely cares for both. that's what a true leader does, or else he's not worth being a leader.
