Its pointless to argue whether Burg is sincere, or what his true intentions are. He does touch upon some most valid issues, and those who avoid to recognise him for that are probably too narrow-minded to understand the points he is making. Most politicians dont dare to take it that far these days. Eventually however, by ignoring the depth of Israelis' reflexions on their own fate, by exaggerating the drama of his own insights and finally, by failing to suggest answers where questions add up endlessly these days, he appears to fall short of offering a viable alternative to what appears to be a severe lack of leadership.
