    "there is no one to talk to on the other side ...since the Palestinians are nothing but a chaotic pack of squabbling clans with no sense of national identity whatsoever." Jeff, You make me laugh it is the Israelis who squabble like a pack of clansmen and can't seem to get along with others and throw up a wall and hide behind it. How are they going to be a light to any nation? (I can't see how it is going to happen.) Yet in another sense they are wayward people and trample unlawfully on other peoples' land and call it theirs. (full of contradictions!) It all seems to fit with their wondering Jew status and the more I understand this the more I feel it was wrong to give them a state. One could say you can take the Jew out of the wilderness but can you really expect to take the wondering out of the Jew? I should think not. Cheers anyway, Dutch
