Bravo Uzi Benziman. The proposed question is very relevant, and Benziman's explanation is clear and right : Israel is prisoner of some extremists and settlers. The only Israeli leader who dared to face those people was assassinated by them. His name was Itzhak Rabin, I guess! Unfortunately, since then there is no another Rabin to make Israel moving towards peace and securtiy. On the contrary, there are Israeli leaders who are more and more partners of some mad U.S. neoconservatives who, in the name of war on terrorism and thanks to their failure in Afghanistan, Irak, Lebanon etc., spread terrorism and its threats all over the Middle East, including Israel itself.
