The left and right are inseperable relative concepts. A bird cannot fly without the two, nor a brain or buttox function without the opposing lobe. The decline in the knesset of overt left policies actually weakens the right as well as the whole is diminished. Arab rejectionsism and backward looking is intrinsic to their culture and politics. Israel encroachment on Palestinian land prejudices the future. Both sides seem to take comfort from the perpetual conflict, and the blood of innocents will be the price. Ego, pride, glorifying and misreading history are the real issues. Let us remember Begin left Sinai, and Sharon left Gaza, and Bibi, if he wakes up from his trance will start to withdraw from illegal and dangerous settlements. Or go down in history as the leader who mislead Israel into final catastrophe..
