Netanyahu is encouraged by the fact that some of his critics are starting to cast doubt on the deal, and even to echo his arguments against it.17:39 30.07.15 | 2 comments
Ben Gurion always feared that the Right might gain control of the country. He considered them fantasizers, which they happen to be. Everybody who believes in Greater Israel with millions of Arabs in the West Bank plus the Israeli Arabs, should get his head examined. (I exclude the Messianists from this, they believe in the myth of the Messiah who will solve all their problems. Craziness, but not curable by a Doctor.) Ben Gurion chose not to conquer the West Bank in the War of Independence, for which the pre-Likud Rightists offered a no-confidence motion. This idiocy goes back a long time, as one can see.
