Uzi Benziman puts it very clearly. Sadly Israel is held hostage by its extremists (many of whom actually live in Brooklyn) so its politicians are unable to make peace with the neighbours. If it did, and helped to set up a viable Pal state in Gaza and the West Bank the whole area could have a great economic future......think about it.... and stop letting the extremist minority run Israel.....for it is this that has turned the Pals into extremists too.
