it's time to acknowledge that the emperor has no clothes. this former soviet Jew still holds the autocratic, paranoid, one-party mindset with which he grew up. It is he who brings a Diaspora perspective, rather than one grounded on the reality of the region, to the conversation (and so does Bibi, by the way). Not only are these latest racist statements of his offensive to citizens of the State of Israel, but they also beg the question: if Arab citizens did not attempt to erect such "regions" in the past 60 years, what on Earth would have them even think of doing so now? How many ways can he attempt to lie his way out of the need to make real peace? How blind can he be about the real threats we face? It's time for him to go, before more people die and fall captive as a result of his unmitigated arrogance. Not in my name.
