    all of this banter...and to characterize 'the realist' as a 'pessimist', and the 'willfully obtuse' as an 'optimist is so off the mark, I can not help but think that the writer is mind fornicating the Israeli public, except they are not listening, they have their minds well made up by now AND FOR GOOD REASON. We are quickly approaching what Netanyahu calls, 'the end of the day'. Israel can not and will not be able to play the one sided concessions in return for terrorist attacks any longer. In case you have not noticed, a war is being prepared to finish off Israel and I would not count on The EU for support, on the contrary.
