Whats the matter Peter W. Did you just wake up to the fact that most of Israels allies [never mind their enemies] recognize the F.M. as a thug, whose diplomatic skills are inversely correlated to his neck size? The New Republic's Martin Peretz, a passionate Zionist and critic of the peace movement, calls Lieberman a "neo-fascist... a certified gangster... the Israeli equivalent of [Austria's] Jorg Haider." "...Then explain how it makes the country a "gangster state"?" PW It doesn't PW. Neither did I claim it in; *Israel`s true face #33* If you were halfway capable of understanding simple prose ["reveals Israel`s true face", being the pertinent words]you would have figured out that I was writing of the irony that Israel, the gangster state of long standing, finally has a F.M. befitting of its hard earned reputation in dealing with 'the other', not that , and I quote you, " it [Lieberman]makes the country a gangster state". With your analytic powers, I`m bewildered as to why you would wish to get published at all. Are you a masochist?
