In fact construction is all that Netanyahu ever intended. What is disturbing is not that Israel is dishonest. It is that Israel is dishonest to itself. How much simpler everything would be were Israel not compelled to mask itself from itself, and pretend that it does not have a singular goal which Mr. Netanyahu and Mr. Lieberman have made absolutely clear. Why does Israel find it impossible to be honest with itself and the world what it's goals are? What the only outcome it will accept is? Would not everything be much simple if Israel just stated it's goal and got on with it? To do that, however, Israel would have to admit to itself what it has become. And so the nation lies, Netanyahu lies, and the lies fester. Honesty is the best policy and when you cannot be honest with yourself you have deep problems.
