Israel?s problem is the state in the state. Israel is not a country with an army, but an army with a country. The Political-Military-Complex makes its own decisions on behalf of the US. The youngest Lebanon war, i.e., was a US creation to destabilize the region. Like in others democracies all over the world, the elections are not for changing the political agenda, but only to show flagrantly, for being a democracy. Poor Barak has, like the failed others, no chance at all!
