There seems to be an inexorable shift to extreme right wing views and policies in Israel. It is associated with a bunker mentality and 'us against' them attitudes'. Netanyahu is encouraging this trend. He must realise however that he can no longer keep talking about wanting peace but doing all he can to undermine the basis for it. He has antagonised nearly all western leaders with his empty words and promises. The settlement policy in particular is showing Israel to be an expansionist state and alienates public opinion around the world. Israel and the right wingers don't see it but it is very obvious. Let's hope that the Israeli Govenment doesn't embark on a wild adventure against Iran. It could bring in Hizbullah, Syria and Hamas and enflame the whole region.
