    It's true that this was a campaign speech at the UN. But bureaucracies and etiquette are far less important than finding the proper solution. With the flotilla incident, Israelis realized that the Palestinians Israeli issue will remain acute, even after a peace with Abbas. Borders must take into consideration the aspiration of parts of Israeli Palestinians, who wish belong to the Palestinians state - if geographically possible. Lieberman's solution is simple, and human in this that people will live within the state they prefer - without moving from their homes. It sounds not nice, as we don't want to live together with Israeli Palestinians who hate us and support Hamas, and its chart. But this is true: we don't like people who want to kill us. The modern model of Western democracy is not sacro-saint, it has its drawbacks. It cannot integrate large different groups. On the other hand, a tragedy is that large parts of Israeli Arabs have been hijacked by Israeli Arabs extremist political parties. This is a direct consequence of European support of left extremism in Israel. Moderate parties attempting to integrate Jews and Arabs in Israel do not receive any support. Those Israeli Arabs: high ranked military officers, judges, teachers, surgeon, engineers, policemen, doctors, who view themselves as "Israelis" without qualifications, should make their voice louder. They should shout: "Not all Israeli Arabs are Zuabi".

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
