    Suddenly South America starts solving for successive Israeli governments the relationship with the Frankenstein of nationalist-religious settlement movement, and pushes both Palestine and Israel into the operation room where it will be surgically divided por peace and health at the 1967 borders (with minor land swaps). This is excellent news for Israel, if only Israel knew that it is. It solves the problem, and Israel has only to cooperate with the international community, thus defeating once and for all the intransigent, messianic right. Israel is also getting Palestine to have to become responsible in governance (as it has done in the last two or three years in the west Bank). Perhaps the only thing that it doesn't solve, is the Iranian province of Gaza. That must be dealt with immediately by -as the Saudi king put it- "cutting the snake's head".
