If DM Ehud Barak's (and the Labour & Kadima parties as well) stance is agreeable to the reality of Jerusalem to be designated as a future shared capital for both Israel and Palestine (not necessarily a divided town), and this differs from PM Netanyahu's political stance, then why is he your coalition partner? PM Netanyahu knows very well that his government's credibility stands only because the likes of the Labour members of Knesset ( Barak, Ben Eliezer, Herzog, etc.) are supporting him at this juncture. A leader sitting on a fence too long with undecided positions on important issues is only taking the people for a ride, and of course the rest of the world. However, the Israeli people, the Palestinian people, the members of the Quartet have become much more clever and PM Netanyahu cannot evade this most continuous issue concerning the town of Jerusalem.
