    Masterly article! It crescendoes in what may be an inevitable appeal to the Israeli voters to decide their fate, in the probability that Shas and Yisrael Beiteinu will not be able to stomach going all the way as parties to a peace proccess with the Palestinians. There is a real threat that they will bolt the coalition first, and then the issue must go to a voter referrendum, in which Israeli voters must realize that the terms and conditions available to Israel in present round of talks will never be better than now, in a Middle East disintegrating into extremism, which can be reversed by success at and after Annapolis. The alternative is an Apartheid Israel increasingly embroiled in increasingly extremist struggles, as her neighbours fall to extremist regimes, such as Hamas and AlQaida. Failure at peace now WILL lead to Israel's demise, and the region's. Not excluding the possibility of WWIII. Incredible stakes, where Shas and Yisrael Beiteinu play the role of Israel's destroyers
