So the world looks at Israel and finds it has a choice between Bibi who doesn't want peace and Lieberman who REALLY doesn't want peace. How uninspiring. - Comment - Israel News | Haaretz Daily Newspaper

    So we've got Bibi who can't even stop the land grab for another few months, and Lieberman who wants to take away their citizenship from tens of thousands of Israeli Arabs without their agreement. OMG. This can't go on. Surely it's time for the US or EU to slap Israel hard and say, 'Get your act together Israel, stop the land grab, free the Pal serfs, and agree a fair peace deal. If not, it's sanctions time. Bye bye US 3 billion a year. Bye bye US veto in the Security Council. Bye bye privileged status with the EU. Hello isolation.'
