Two points. First, while Israel definitely has societal problems and economic problems, unlike just about every other poster here I really don't know what the best solution is. What I do know is that the solution is DEFINITELY not socialism. Second, the evidence of the last 100 years shows that the Arabs are not has rational has Jews and in fact they are not rational at all. Lastly, unless I'm missing something the backbone of Likud is Sephardic. And that's because they know the Arabs best. I for one would have no problem with a tough Sephardi Jew has prime minister. They at least know who they are dealing with.
