    And perhaps that's why you use it while recurring on the myth that Sharon was the "cause" of the second Intifadah. It was foretold by Palestinian politicians as early as spring 2000, like Barghouti told Shlomo Ben Ami for example at the time. Palestinians decided to pour gasoline as incitement to violence with Iranian backing since the mid 1999's, in the middle of the Oslo peace process, and Sharon provided the excuse to throw in a match. The rest is tragic history, more than 4000 Israelis and Palestinians dead, many more thaousands wounded, and a tragedy for the peace process, whose blame falls squarely on Arafat. Ask Clinton. Ask even the very few honest Palestinian politicians, like Yasser Abed Rabbo. They now say it aloud.

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
