    I can't tell yet, but he's certainly more entertaining than any other Israeli leader. He is fixated on transferring Israel's Arab population to whatever Palestinian state is created; something that no sane Israeli-Arab would want. so it's hard to take him seriously on the issue. One thing he is not wrong about; the weakness on both sides of the fence in Israel. The left are delusional about "just getting along" with the Arabs, and the right is wrong in not wanting to compromise on the right issues. Israel does not need more than 10% of the WB to keep most of the largest settlements intact, and it could help the PA develop some of the Arab suburbs of Yerushalayim which could form the nucleus of a capital. Where they can't bend is on the right of return, Jerusalem (especially control of the Old City), and control of the Jordan Valley. Gaza can rot.
