    The present leadership of Israel is no leadership at all, if we consider what leadership is. They are followers and whatever the American foreign policy of the day is, goes. Unlike poor Peretz the outsider, Livni has the "right" political and family background, but appears in-over-her-head as Foreign Minister.Her time will be spend allying herself with Barak and talking nonsense that sounds good to some but means nothing. A real Foreign Minister would be thinking about how to reach Palestinian 'convergence" for Israel's benefit, as both Hamas and Fatah are now weak. Hamas is scared of actually running Gaza, and Fatah is afraid of losing their hold on the "west bank". I read the article in Ha'aretz on Kissinger, and you know Israel needs such a Machiavelli FM who can manipulate and undermind our adversaries to our benefit. Not a woman from a good family who has big political dreams, and not much else going on.
