    With all that has transpired since '67, the only way to interpret Netanyahu's oinking is to consider it as a threat. After all, the West Bank Palestinians are now at peace with Israel. Violence has all but stopped and what remains is more appropriately classified as criminal not as acts of aggression or war. So, it sounds like Netanyahu is simply telling the Palestinians, "Dare to be recognized by the world community and you'll make us angry enough to cut off your balls ." Plain and simple. Yes, the peace is not a stable one. The Palestinians may achieve a state but will remain subjugated by an occupation that steals their rights, sovereignty over their own land, their water, and their dignity. With world backing and continued Israeli aggression and oppression, and a frustrated, angry citizenry, it's easy to imagine an eventual end to world and Palestinian patience. It's up to Israel to decide how long it wishes to act in a way that in the long run places all Jews at risk--those in Israel and those in the Diaspora--for the sake of leading its people to hate, to steal and to beg for survival. So humiliating, but I guess Israeli Jews have grown used to living in that limelight.
