It's also going to put the screws to Obama who will be caught between sensible policy on one hand and fundamentalist Republicans on the other who will be the settler's cheerleaders when they start bashing Palastinian heads. What an impossibly screwed up situation the settlers have put Israel into. Israel's ultimate choice will be to do some combination of ethnic clensing and bantustans on one hand, or retreat into pre-'67 Israel with emboldened and outraged Pals for whom peace and a two state solution are not on the agenda. Got to hand it to the religious nationalists. Those unlettered and narrowminded folks who never read a Shakespeare tragedy sure managed to conjure up one all by themselves. Wish I could skip the ending on this one. I suspect that it will make the last act of Hamlet look like a nice family get together.
