every time the moderate/soft left betrays its values and principles (see the left in Italy under Berlusconi or the Democrats under Clinton and under Bush), a country shifts to the hard right in both domestic and foreign affairs. in Israel, the zionist left (people like Beilin)could have easily opposed a criminal and stupid war, not only on moral grounds, but also because this barbaric and unecessary adventure was bound to fail. Instead the Israeli "left" (apart from a few people such as Yossi Sarid) has prefered to stick to their zionist narrative which self-justifies the pursuit of Israeli colonial policies in the Middle-East.
