It strikes me as rather absurd that the Israeli left keeps on perpetuating the myth that Israel is to blame for the ME conflict and that Israel has to grovel for peace. The pals do not attack Israel bacause their economy is in ruins. It's the other way round: the palestinians' economy is in ruins because they keep on attacking Israel. Why? Because they never have and never will accept Israel's existence.Even so-called moderate Abbas does not hesitate to laud the terrorists who killed Israeli civilians as Martyrs for the Cause. When will the Israeli left wake up and realise there's no peace partner?
