    One would think that the whole Middle East has its wires crossed.That ever word from every mouth in power is a case of verbal dyslexia.But we know that this also is politics. I mean if the Israelis had to try and understand the triple and quadruple speak of the Palestinians,of how they can want to destroy a country that doesnt exist and reoccupy a country that never existed that would be a little confusing too. On the other hand Im very positive,mixed signals or not. I think we have come to this great moment in time when Geo politics is bigger than local politics,when Globalism is bigger than niche,and when these two combatants are going to make peace to make it fit into the kind of bigger world that we are headed for.Either you are with us or against us,either with the forard world or back in the past. Everyone,not just Olmert and Abbas,should decide that.

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.
