    Netanyahu is an expert PR man, with a Masters degree in Marketing. His PR can cover up his political cowardice, but you can't fool all of the people all of the time. Even by blaming Old Labor for Palestinian failure to put up with the creeping annexation of the West Bank, one can see that Netanyahu has no new ideas about moving ahead. The Palestinians are doing quite OK right now. The continent of South America is falling right into their column of supporters, and the rest of the world is getting disgusted with Israel. The likelihood is that the UN will recognize Palestinian independence in the 1967 borders THIS year. Of course, Israel is still holding the land, but White South Africa was also holding their land despite UN sanctions. Then one day they gave up. Germany was looking strong in WW1, then they gave up (giving rise to the myth of somebody stabbing them in the back). Netanyahu should start reading history. It will be good for coming up with excuses for his failure as PM.
