Netanyahu is encouraged by the fact that some of his critics are starting to cast doubt on the deal, and even to echo his arguments against it.17:39 30.07.15 | 0 comments
Levy knows what he is talking about. The settlers are in denial and will viciously attack anyone that attempts to tell them the truth. Israeli leaders pander to the settlers for political survival. Having been in the West Bank, I know how ugly the occupation has become. I also have seen how ugly the settlers can be to the Palestinians. Arrogance and zealotry prevail. Yet Israeli and USA funds are being used to subsidize settlers so that they can continue to be a catalyst for violence. The future of Israel is in recognizing and accepting diversity within Judaism and our Arab neighbors, especially Palestinians. They have human and economic rights which must be restored in order to bring peace. Otherwise the future is bleak for ever achieving peace as well as the survival of an Israel that we can take pride in.
