    Generally, one should be wary of saying "never" but when referring to Israel, the term is apt. The Moldovan who lives outside his adopted country heads a 15 member segment of the Knesset. He is supported ideologically at least on nationalist and irredentist issues by the religious parites that are prepared to give their fatwas against those who even speak of returning territories stolen by Israel. What power does Kadima have and how truly divergent are their views from those of netanyahu? netanyahu has no intention of extending the freeze. Do you think he might seek a compromise by saying the 23 or more illegal outposts that should have come down half a decade ago will finally come down? Of course not. He cannnot afford to alienate the Moldovan and his russian henchmen. Israel has made, repeatedly its bed and now it must lie in it and wallow in their joy that the international community has finally recognised them as a rogue regime. As for the moldovan, declare him a persona non grata and make sure he is unwelcome anywhere in the civilised world. Let him return to his home country, either Israel or moldova, which ever he prefers.
