    While I dont agree with everything Prime Minister Sharon does, I dont agree with everything President Bush does either, but I see people who understand the future and how to make it work. While I personally dont agree that there should be a second Palestinian state, Jordan should be enough, I understand that there will be a second one until the arabs attack Israel again and are this time destroyed. Its too bad the Arabs cant accept historical facts that Jews are native to the land. It is our past, present, and future. Rather than trying to share, they only try to destroy the past, present, and future. Thankfully, Prime Minister Sharon is at the helm. I just wish the Jewish political parties in Israel would try to compromise to do whats best for Israel rather than argue with each other over who gets what out of this budget and this ministry. Being an American Jew, I am envious of being somewhere where my brothers and sisters are the majority. I am also saddened by the fact that when they disagree, they need to compromise to do whats best religiously, economically, militarily, and diplomatically. Find the best solutions. I think Prime Minister Ariel Sharon is whats best for Israel for now and in the near future.
