    Omar, it is a very clever saying, "Barukh HaShemites". Haven't heard it before. If it also applies to the Hashim dynasty, I would write it as "Barukh Hashemites". As far as Likud, there is slow progress, but they are always behind the times of course. Begin, Shamir and Arens did not formally give up on the right to the East Bank of the Jordan, but let it go as a practical idea. Likud under Netanyahu is even willing to compromise on some parts of the West Bank that were already handed over (areas B and C) although they would not admit it in public. Sharon did admit that he wanted a collection of disjointed Bantustans in the West Bank (and Gaza). Progress has to be initiated by the other parties in Israel, and against Likud. If it were up to them there would be no peace.
