    What is it about Israelis right and left that everything depends on America. A lot depnds on Israel understanding its position. Israel isa tiny country with a lot of firepower but little else it can be squashed not so America and most of the countries that surround us . Obama made it clear he threw Israel the bone of telling the Palestinians that he won’t support them if they go to the UN. And he also told them that they are going to have to work out what their position is now that Hamas is in the fold. But Obama is expecting Netanyahu to come up with a map. And while I believe that America will go for the gush becoming Israel, it will expect an equivalent parcel to go to the Arabs and no, the US will not go for the ridiculous as in Israeli military presence in the Jordan valley. Finally, Jerusalem will be played off against the Palestinian Right of Return. The notion that Obama will soon forget it is not realistic. Anyway even if that should happen that would be terrible for Israel. Israel needs to disengage from the Palestinian people.

Israel's angry, bitter left must reclaim the language of hope

We leftists whine and complain, we only talk about how bleak and hopeless life is in Israel. We alienate all those Israelis whose support we need to bring political change.
