    Unfortunately the 1967 Six Day War created the reality which permitted the genuine Zionistic dream to be hijacked by an uncompromising messianic delusion of a GREATER ISRAEL. It is even more unfortunte that the secular Israelis willing to compromise with the Palestinians, this time ready for peace, the are not properly represented in the Kneseth because of an outdated electoral system. PM Begin gave back Sinai to retain the West Bank; PM Sharon is ready to part from Gaza for basically the same reasons. Just an other smoke screen. ALL Israeli governments starting from 1967 permitted the creation of the illegal settlements in which 60 billion dollars have been invested so far. PM Barak's "peace negotiating goverment" was no exeption to this rule. Does Israel want PEACE? No. Israel wants instead a great chunk or... PIECE of the West Bank. This policy will just keep further humiliating the Palestinians. This is turn will bring the Palestinian extremist to political power (Hamas, etc.) and then PM Sharon will be able to say : See, we have no partners to Peace and the Israeli "Independence war" will eneter its 6th decade and beyond! Wake up Israel!
