Addressing ceremony, Netanyahu says that 'anti-Semitism didn't die with Hitler.' He calls on the country to 'fight the lies, increase our strength and build the country.'20:46 04.05.16 | 0 comments
strenger repeats & repeats about pragmatism. these days we need some more detailed proposals about what to do & in which direction to go. what he says is in fact not very different from what netanyahu is saying, w/the only difference that strenger would be willing to clear out some of the settlements on the way to the "distant goal". both somehow imply it's gonna work out in the end, in the meantime let's be pragmatic. how long are the two sides gonna need to work out a final deal? you need a real horizon here, one that makes it credible the two sides are actually going the same way (unlike oslo), & you need it fast. it's not bad what he's saying & the analysis of morris etc is interesting. only one note. i always react negatively to this kind of division: "israel was insincere, the pals were in chaos & ambivalent" - one was an actor, the other only had a "condition". that's always wrong. both were insincere during oslo.
