    I couldnt stop praising Peretz either, but in politics these things happen. They are politicians, they lie for a living. The difference between the two is that we've seen what both are capable of and now have decided that after Peretz made a arse of himself we're backing Barak becuase theres no one else. Arafat wouldnt have made peace even if Israel offered him all of Palestine. He was a cancerous rat of a man. Ariel Sharon sparked the second intifada. And in terms of Baraks statements to the Israeli public, i dont blame him for saying those things. How easy is it to say to Israelis, "we're gonna make peace but with a few concessions"? Its political suicide and the election proved that. The Israeli public is too impatient, too scared, too sensationalist to give a realistic fighting chance to its leaders. Today, i support Barak, and who knows, one day, i will have to eat my words, but for peace, thats a risk i'm willing to take. And i hope you are too. Shalom
