Akiva Eldar must have read his Marx/Hegel wel: the idea of on purpose worsening the situation to such a critical point that a revolution is the only logical means for ending the misery of the people, the `Verelendung`. I disagree. I don`t think the thesis of increased Israeli oppressive rule by Jewish fanatics like Lieberman and the anti-thesis of increased poverty and misery by the Palestinians will make the international community (in which the US would have to be the leader) want to force Israel into accepting a -synthesis of a - just and sustainable peace. One fact is that the international community doesn`t really care (ewspecially the US) if their is a just peace or not. The international community doesn`t suffer, whether Israel as an agenda or not. I`m afraid the Baron of Munchhausen is more accurate: Israel somehow has to pull itself by its own hair out of the swam it fell in.
